This exhibition consists of Hazel Thomson’s fascination with the passing of time and seasons through our natural world. Hazel focuses her lens and hyper-realistic paintings on trees as they adapt to their surroundings; shedding and sprouting leaves, exposing and enveloping branches as winter turns to spring and spring into summer.
Hazel says: “I study and observe our environment through my passion for trees, right down to the smallest detail, which gives me an intuitive instinct on how to add the pure beauty of nature and the spirit of the natural world to my work.
Time is a strong factor for me, whether it’s night or day or the different seasons. I like to merge the different seasons and times to contrast and show the real change our green spaces go under. To create a scene, I need to add emotion, textural feel, and a sense of peace, this gives me full satisfaction, then I know the painting is complete.
My work has narratives of realism, contemporary and impressionism. Look closely and you will understand how all these styles come together. I discovered my style of painting through experimental means. Working predominantly in oils, I paint what I love; mainly trees and nature.
These paintings are textured and detailed; close-up you can see the hours of invested time and fine brush work. It is important to me that my work helps people to engage in the spiritual side of nature, to improve our mental wellbeing in this ever-changing chaotic world.”
Over the years Hazel Thomson has exhibited her work across the UK and Northwest including the Williamson Art Gallery, Grosvenor Museum and Castle Park Arts Centre.
