Una Haran Studying Architecture/Landscape Architecture at University College London, London
Show More Artist Statement

As an Art Foundation student, the work I have produced over the last year has been varied, in media, style, subject matter and scale. At this time, I have progressed into my specialism (painting), and much of my current work is semi-figurative oil painting, working from a combination of source material and intuitive painting. I have been very influenced by the American Abstract Expressionist movement, as well as by the Northwest School, Impressionism and Les Nabis. The focus of my work is my fascination with colour. The nature of paint and surface material also plays an important role.
