Agnes Treherne’s paintings are based on observations of daily life and the landscape surrounding her, like stills from a film with an enduring gleam. Time has stopped and imprinted the desolate figures in a refined and eternal light. The composition of the works appears to be planned thoroughly as well as spontaneously. The colours are meticulously balanced but also genuine. The characters seem overwhelmed by the landscape and weighed down by existence, but here there is also a lightness and a barren beauty that can give hope and reassurance.
