Bernadette Ash – Painter

Bernadette Ash

I have spent almost all of my life making images, but the paintings are a long way from the early cool black, white and grey images on film which I made as a radiographer. Eventually, my need to paint compelled me to change direction so I resigned my post as Superintendent Radiographer at St Bartholomew’s Hospital, London and went to art school, first to the Byam Shaw then to Camberwell School of Art.

27 years ago I moved to Somerset and this landscape, which is so rich, is central to my work. Abstracting from landscape and still being tied by it’s immense visual impact is a constant challenge. During the recent abundance of summers, colour and the hotter side of the palette have become of increasing importance in the work, especially in landscape.
