Meet the Artist : Hazel Battersby
Hazel Battersby is a Scottish artist, based in York. Hazel has exhibited throughout the UK.
Hazel's solo exhibition 'Markers' will be on display at Ginger Works from August to October 2022.
‘Markers’ @ Ginger Works, collates a collection of work from 2021. Hazel’s paintings are inspired by landscape but remain essentially abstract.
'Markers' summarises key elements of the referencing process;
Firstly, the physical processes involved in making my paintings; the marks made by varied media including pastel, charcoal, pencil and paint. Through exploration of mark-making, drawing and collage, both abstract and descriptive properties develop.
This is combined with the process of marking the landscape through visiting remote places, observing, walking, exploring and drawing to document a sense of place. Inspiration often comes from visiting varied locations within the UK, observing and experiencing dramatic landscape.
