FIONA STARR


Fiona Starr was born in Leeds in 1960. She studied at Jacob Kramer College in 1977 and gained a Fine Art degree at Stourbridge College of Art in 1980. She went on to train as a teacher in 1987 and is at present Head of Art and Design Technology at Moorlands Independent School in Leeds “My paintings are fundamentally inspired by colour and the desire to make paint express vital, living feelings and emotions. I work intuitively with colour and shape, where my original ideas andcompositions are constantly being changed – shifted and modified until the painting has absorbed the feelings I wish to convey. My sense of developed colour is from fleeting memories of landscapes, my surroundings and the emotions that those colours create within me. My paintings hover between figuration and abstraction and explore many different themes. I work mainly in acrylics, starting with base coats of luminous colour. I build up layers, overlapping translucent washes with more opaque vibrant colours. I like the contradiction of the organic forms of the human body with the more geometric lines and shapes that make up the interior space. I enjoy grappling with the challenges of developing a compositional flow to the shapes across the surface of the canvas.”Exhibitions include: Salt House Gallery, St. Ives; Ferens Art Gallery, Hull; St Ives Galley, Cornwall; ‘ART’ Gallery, Leeds; Oakwood Gallery, Leeds; Walker Gallery, Harrogate; Olive tree, Leeds; ‘Borders’, Leeds; Harlow Carr exhibition; Artco, Art and framing, Leeds; York Treasurer’s House Exhibition, ‘The Northern Landscapes’; Headrow Gallery, Leeds and the Edinburgh Art Fair.
