Purdey Fitzherbert - Ground & Hung

For Purdey the process of creation is paramount. The artist embraces the full journey in her works, starting with hand-ground pigments through to relinquishing her dominant role as a maker, and trusting in the natural processes to carry through her artistic vision and release the creative force behind it.

Purdey herself views it as a process of ‘discovery and mystery, some of which will always be unknown’. The courage of letting the beauty be revealed ‘from within the darkness of matter’ without interventions and impositions is a vital aspect of Purdey’s nature as an artist.

“There is a relentless Natural flow to the universe, impermanence is the nature of reality; it is the nature of nature.”
