Prue Pye

Prue Pye artist 2019

See ‘Red Cliffs’ at the PAOS affordable art fair.

Prue Pye’s paintings contain a quiet presence reflected in earth colours and are the main body of her work. Abstracted landscapes described in sweeps and blocks of colour are also a favoured subject.

“My wanting to paint is a wanting to explore the ordinary and extraordinary of humanness. Drawing or painting in ways that communicate or speak of recognition and familiarity.”

Born and raised in Africa, my fine art studies as a mature student led me to discover and develop life paintings with a contemporary feel. A need to express myself in colour gave me a language in paint. I had taught botanical studies and the modelling of flowers for many years and these tiny, fragile pieces later turned to the direction of larger, expressive painting.
