Corrina Rothwell paintings

Before realising her true calling as a painter, Corrina Rothwell was a successful textile artist, then later a digital illustrator. Yet she always loved using paint and has dipped in and out of it over the years, so whilst enjoying digital illustration the desire to get her hands dirty was too great to ignore in the end. As a painter she progressively moved away from figurative work towards focussing on abstract shape and colour, trusting her intuition and gradually becoming more at ease with producing artwork without a narrative…

‘Ultimately, however, that lack of narrative has proved itself to be something (subconsciously) I couldn’t ignore and, quite without intent, buildings have started to appear in my work. I say without intent because I didn’t plan to use them – I just answered an urge to put them there. I’m particularly drawn to old factories and urban industrial landscapes and, given that I grew up in the cotton mill county of Lancashire, it doesn’t take a genius to work out where this attraction comes from.’

‘I’m becoming more involved in this concept of history and narrative which has emerged out of my subconscious and into my current artwork, and it’s leading to paintings which I feel good about in my soul, which satisfy me on a deep level. It’s a rich seam to mine, and the exciting thing is that I’ve only just begun!’
