Wendy Ferguson’s ideas stem from the often turbulent scenes depicted from the Romantic era. She explores the changing Fermanagh rural landscape which is transferred into abstracted, expressive surfaces. Ferguson states that she is not ” interested in a realistic landscape”. Rather she aims to translate the elemental through energetic, yet considered brushstrokes which respond to the changes in the land, the weather and the seasons.
Ferguson is a former 2016 graduate of the Ulster University, achieving a First class Honours Degree in Fine Art Painting and Drawing. Since Graduating Ferguson has been awarded the position of ‘Artist in Residence’ for the 2016/17 academic year by Ulster University.
