Collection: Constance Regardsoe

Award-winning Constance Regardsoe is a UK based artist. An enthusiastic wild swimmer Constance has a longstanding fascination with water and uses it to express time and impermanence ideas. The intricacy of light and water patterns in her paintings speak of transience; a brief split second sooner or later in the captured source image would alter them radically. By contrast, the fleeting moment captured in each of her paintings juxtaposes with the time-consuming painting process she employs, each moment painstakingly recreated over time, like an insect preserved in amber. Figurative work in her paintings reminds the viewer of our collective smallness; in her more abstract pieces, the figure takes on a radically altered state, a visual reminder of our transience and the inevitability of being changed by our surroundings.   


"I have always been drawn to water, and am an enthusiastic wild swimmer. I like how the experience of being in water reminds us of our smallness, and I try to express this in my work by examining how the water distorts and shifts the body. My pieces are also about time; as a reference, I paint from photographs with a short exposure, and the brief split second captured is then painstakingly transferred to canvas over many many hours."
