In Maria Radun’s painting practice she explores three themes that resonate with her deeply.
First, she honours the painting techniques and values of realist, tonal and impressionist painting with traditional renditions of still life, landscape and portraiture.
Second, she captures the splendour of the natural world that surrounds her. She is especially drawn to light, colour and atmosphere.
Third, Maria embraces the uncanny beauty of the surreal. She enjoys creating interesting compositions that invite the viewer into a world that is strange yet familiar. These more personal artworks are often inspired by dreams, poetry or music, ideas and images that move her.
As well as oil painting, Maria is also passionate about drawing. Always in awe of the limitless possibilities of the simple graphite or charcoal as a medium. She loves spending time carefully observing my subject to gain a deeper understanding of the world and my place in it.
