Acrylic Paint, Canvas
Modern abstract expressionist painting by contemporary Texas artist Winifred Booth. The work features a predominantly yellow background accented with blue and magenta splatters. Signed by artist in front lower right corner. Hung in a light wooden frame.
Winifred grew up in Northern Ireland in an artistic family where drawing and painting were favorite pastimes. After moving to Texas, and despite her love for art, she chose to major in English at the University of Texas, Arlington, where she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree. From 2004 – 2006 she enrolled in still-life and landscape classes at the Williamson Studio and The Houston Art League. Over the years she has interspersed her representational works with abstracts, but since 2018 her primary focus has shifted to abstraction. Using various media and a bold application approach, her paintings are created in layers to elicit depth, structure and meaning. She finds inspiration in a broad range of everyday events. She is currently a member of American Women Artists (Associate with Distinction), and her work has been juried into many competitive shows.
"My paintings gradually build on themselves from a series of layers. Often it’s about removing an element as much as it is about adding one. I usually integrate something from each layer, whether texture or color, in creating what I hope is a final cohesive image."
