Hester Berry visited Scilly with her family to create a body of work for Tamarisk inspired by the local landscape. This painting is of Pentle Bay, the iconic beach on the East side of Tresco.
Hester Berry’s practice is rooted in traditional representation and she explores ways paint can portray effects such as light, time, movement and climate. She uses the marks available to her as economically as possible, distilling the image, feeling or moment into what is necessary, so that through objective depiction there is enough room for subjective interpretation.
