René Viner

Looking forward to welcoming you back to PAOS 2024

Decorative and functional ceramics and evocative semi-abstract paintings will be on display.

My paintings and ceramics investigate structures, shapes and colours inspired by our natural world. The detail and pattern often overlooked in our busy lives is of special interest. I love how texture allows a play of light and shadow on the surfaces of my work. My aim is not to attempt to mimic nature but rather describe the qualities of a subjective experience intuitively, thereby encouraging the viewer to ‘feel’ their own interpretation of what they see in my work. My garden has become a bigger canvas for my artistic expression and is open for you to explore and enjoy.

Delicious homemade treats available which can be enjoyed in the picturesque garden where mosaic will be on display. Proceeds from refreshments donated to Sue Ryder.

“Hand-building clay into objects inspired by nature’s forms and structures is an extension of my textured, atmospheric painting”.

I strive to create a beauty in imperfect harmony known in Japanas Wabi Sabi: Enjoying the moment and life’s simple pleasures…I hope these hand-built objects bring simple pleasure.

Sea, Sky and lanscape inspire my work.

These richly textured  and atmospheric paintings are semi abstract and expressionistic.

Rather than mimic nature, I prefer to describe the qualities of a subjective experience.

Ceramic Wall Art

Ceramics is an exciting and natural progression of my work. Hand-building and manipulating clay into objects inspired by nature’s forms and structures is an extension of my textured, atmospheric paintings. Latest work includes ceramic Wall Art, currently showcased in galleries around the UK.
