About the artist

+
Plum Neasmith studied at the University of Gloucestershire for five years gaining a BA in Fine Art. As an undergraduate she won the prestigious Grant Thornton Travel Award. She currently lives and works in Cheltenham.

Plum Neasmith's work has been shown widely throughout the UK including The Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, The Royal West Academy Open Exhibition, Hampstead Affordable Art Fairs and Bristol Affordable Art Fairs.

In Plum Neasmith's words: "The starting point for a painting is often an experience of place. The work and its meaning evolves in the studio through the action of distillation and translation. Process and chance are a fundamental part of the process as well as utilising the often slow, indirect and multi-layered nature of memory. The work is trying to remember something perhaps through the freezing of time, to reveal something new about a subject as well as attempting to capture its essence or illusory nature."

Plum produced this work during the first imposed lockdown of 2020. In her own words:
'During the initial lockdown I went through a cycle of thoughts that impacted on my studio practice. I like calling it 'my practice' as I feel it accurately describes my process of constantly honing my work in the hope of one day producing the masterpiece!

'At first my small world of painting seemed insignificant in the context of what we were facing with the challenges of Covid. The world had become a scary place. But then I looked again at my studio, this time with real gratitude as it enabled me to focus on paint not news. However, my normal subject matter involving experiences gained from travel was no longer available so I had to look much closer to home. A quote from Proust sprang to mind "...the real voyage of discovery lies not in travelling to new lands but seeing with new eyes".

'My garden, home and a daily walk with my dog Alf all became a new focus.'
