About

OLWEN TARRANT won her first prize while still at Art College in London. The judge was Sir Charles Wheeler, former President of the Royal Academy, who prophesied a successful career for Olwen and bought her painting for his own collection. It was the first of several prizes and awards for Olwen at both painting and sculpture, including the Alan Gourley, Cornelissen and Llewellyn Alexander award and the A & K Wilson award at the ROI Annual Exhibition in 2007. She has been on radio and television, has written many articles for art magazines, and her paintings and drawings have appeared in numerous art text books. Olwen has lectured and demonstrated on painting and sculpture in many parts of the country. She also has exhibited her paintings regularly in London and top galleries Asked about her work, Olwen says “Like all artists I am always striving to show how I perceive the world around me; endeavouring to do this to my own satisfaction and never quite reaching the goals I set for myself. In my Mediterranean paintings I try to convey the excitement of the sunlight dancing over the landscape. Still life subjects are always a challenge to me. I want to show on my canvas the feeling of pleasure it gives me to catch a glimpse of a group of objects, which shows quite unexpectedly an arrangement of colours, shapes and textures. I like to do figures from memory in my paintings.” Olwen exhibits her work in galleries in London and throughout the country, including the Mall Galleries, the home of the Royal Institute of Oil Painters (R.O.I.), of which she is now a Fellow. Olwen was President of the R.O.I. for five years and is the only woman to be elected to the post in its 125-year old history. Piece is under glass in a swept composite frame. Keywords: Flowers, fruit, colourful, oranges, vase, table, impressionist, still, blue, red, green, pastel.
