April Ponsford  

In my body of abstract paintings I seek to depict spaces reflecting on the importance of place and the power of nature.

Although my works echo landscapes, my innovative approach not only engages the deep mystery of expansive landscape but also for the self.

My work is a creative process, through multiple layers of paint, and distinctive brushwork along with palette knives I fuse my emotional visions of memorable experiences somewhere between reality and the more interestingly abstract reality of my imagination.

Everything in nature breathes, and my gestures give freedom to both reflect the extraordinary richness, fragility and the strength of what moves me visually and possesses a certain unique quality.

Indeed, the images are an enveloping unity of space to convey serenity, tranquility and to symbolize the mystery of landscapes, which makes them powerful and poetic, and subject to the viewers' interpretation.

"Painting is like breathing to me.  It's what I do all the time."  

My works are in private collections throughout the world.
