A SMALLER PICTURE: Oil Paintings by Geraldine Waterman

Geraldine Waterman, originally from Leeds, moved to Norwich when she was nine. Whilst studying art at A-Level, Geraldine was invited to attend a summer school with a local artist called Judy Scott. Judy became a great inspiration encouraging her to further her studies at art college. Geraldine graduated from the Norwich University of the Arts with a degree in Fine Art in 2000. She has continued to paint primarily in oil and recently took part in a collaborative mural for the Norwich Fringe Festival in 2014.

For our first exhibition of 2015 at The Bridge, we present to you these little glimpses of joy. Although each canvas measures only 20 x 20 cm, the vistas you see stretch way beyond their physical size. Like many Geraldine Waterman enjoys walking within the beautiful diverse landscape of Norfolk; through brightly coloured fields, dappled woodland light and along flint strewn beaches under wide dramatic skies. It is these atmospheric aspects of the walks she aims to capture on canvas, using colour, light and texture in paint, to create a window on a moment.
