Tessa believes in the power of suggestion and her paintings tend to hover between abstraction and figuration. Houghton likes the idea that they will trigger a memory or a sensation by being recognisable or familiar in some way and the final interpretation is left open to the viewer. Each painting offers a different perspective and possibility; sometimes dramatic, other times hazy and subdued.
Paint and other mediums are applied in a variety of methods so that intense layers of texture contrast with areas of smooth subtlety. Whilst light and depth are key components, colour and form are simplified to capture the true essence of the subject matter.Show less
"These works lie somewhere between abstraction and seascapes resulting in an ethereal, ambiguous atmosphere that leaves interpretation open for the individual viewers. Beautiful use of light and texture that seem to transport the viewer to another world."
