Will Gompertz and Aisha Bridgman at the Turner Prize, Tate Britain

Here's me with Will Gompertz,
a super engaging and warm gentleman, at a private view of the Turner Prize 2018, Tate Britain.

artist bio

Aisha Bridgman is best known for her abstract paintings.  Colour interactions and composition are central to her practice as a painter.  In what continues to be a changeable climate on many fronts, the imagery, often inspired by nature, is abstracted, imagined, escapist.  

 

During her Fine Art degree, Aisha visited New York to see the work of the Abstract Expressionists.  Two of her earliest influences were the American painters Morris Louis and Clyfford Still.  Following graduation, Aisha worked within contemporary art and antiques, she later moved into the corporate sector.  

 

Originally from Portsmouth, Aisha is now based in Surrey where she works from her home studio.  Her expression of colour continues to connect people to her art and her paintings have been secured in private collections within the UK, Europe and Asia. 

Aisha recently exhibited with Welsh gallery Studio Cennen.  In later 2022 through 2023, she will receive mentoring from Turps Art School for her painting practice.

artist statement 

Painting from a small home studio and responding to an ever-changing world, the imagery in my artworks have gravitated towards nature abstraction, through imagined land and seascapes, on occasion they have become otherworldly.  My intention in my work is to offer a visual form of exploration for myself and to others.  I create movement with bands of colour, which flow towards the viewer’s gaze and then away to the horizon  Sometimes the paintings are abstracted further with sewn thread, or drips of ink.  The ink adds a contrasting element, a visual rhythm to the work.  It can be quite present and active in the painting, or applied more subtly, as an accent in the skyline.
