Constance Regardsoe

About the artist

Figurative painter Constance Regardsoe has a longstanding fascination with water and uses it to express ideas of time and impermanence in her artworks. The intricacy of the patterns of light and water in her paintings speak of transience; a brief split second sooner or later in the captured source image would alter them radically.

By contrast, the fleeting moment that is captured in each of her paintings juxtaposes with the time consuming painting process she employs, and the moment is painstakingly recreated over weeks, like an insect being preserved in amber. The use of a figure in her painting serves to remind the viewer of our collective smallness; in her more abstract pieces, the form of the figure is radically altered, a visual reminder of our own ephemerality and the inevitability of being changed by our surroundings.
