Retrospective Exhibition of Paintings by Teresa Durá Branson

Kirkcudbright HarbourDate posted: 24/04/17

“Ten years after Teresa Durá Branson’s final exhibition in May 2007, in her home town of Kirkcudbright, she finally put down her brushes. Now the paintings of the late Teresa Durá Branson, who passed away in 2016, are once again on display in the town.

The Tolbooth Art Centre is staging a retrospective exhibition of the Spanish born artist’s atmospheric work from May 3 to May 21. Most people will find that this Retrospective Exhibition is worth browsing around at their leisure.

Paintings by Teresa are kept in many private and public collections around the world, including the Gracefield Art Centre in Dumfries. Unlike many artists, Teresa Durá Branson was equally at home painting in oils, pastels, watercolours and mixed media.

In her work Teresa endeavoured to visually convey the emotions which nature inspired in all it’s moods. At times these moods were subtle and serene, and at others bold and dramatic, and often many of her works are imbued with a mystical and spiritual undercurrent. She was a visionary and a free thinker and embraced the gift of life, considering it to be a privilege.

Teresa’s legacy will live on through her many paintings”

Pauline Lawton Art

Pauline lawton ArtColour, textiles, distressed patterns and shapes are what excites me and my paintings are contemporary interpretations of the landscape and coastline surrounding my recent move to Kirkcudbright, as well as my journeys in Europe and Morocco. Images and sketchbooks emerge as I search for information/ideas that will remind me of something more than a representational inspiration. I work in acrylics and mixed media, with textured surfaces and strong colours to achieve the effect I seek. See website for more details
