Polly Rose Pincott is an Oxfordshire based Portrait Artist. She works with a variety of media, such as charcoal and pencil for intimate, nostalgic portraits and commissions.
Her recent practice revisits a long lost love of oil painting, exploring colour and flesh tones in a more vibrant, energetic approach.
It is an exploration whereby precision and abstraction align.
'I want these portraits to be entirely recognisable but not constructed through traditional portrait painting methods or realism. With each painting I am playing and pulling with colour, form and texture.
It is important to me that the brush is evident, that the viewer is able to discover how the painting has been constructed by following its marks and shapes.
Within my portraits I aim to achieve a boldness of character, alongside an offering of contemplative vulnerability. They rely not on apparent narrative but mood and sensitivity. My portraits tend to orbit around themes of nostalgia, sentiment and memory, the sitter represented with both a sense of strength and calm. I am searching for balance and sense of spirit for the viewer to connect with. '
