Ashar's studio is on the second floor of our Langport gallery, where more of her art is currently being displayed.
I work my two loves in tandem; abstract painting and abstraction of the Somerset levels and moors. I strive to paint my feelings and not what I see! Since our lives are made up of millions of tiny moments, both positive and negative. They appear and disappear triggered by a word a moment in time a colour a place a smile building layer upon layer. This is how my paintings are built layering and glazing the paint influences the paintings final outcome; each layer building a picture of memory and experience.
“I will not be an artist until I have created a piece of work that cannot be discussed, only felt.” Steve Abrams
I endeavour to express a feeling of place with colour and marks; and create work that has the ability to be felt by the viewer and not deliberated upon.'
