Houghton creates dreamlike ethereal landscapes that are infused with light, texture, and infinite possibilities. Expansive vistas with blurred horizons, feature pathways and journeys with unknown destinations. Inspired by nature with its inherent symbolism and contrasts, the paintings attempt to explore themes of fragility and strength, death and renewal, transience and endurance.

 

The most recent work pays homage to childhood and family and explores the strong emotional attachments we have with particular places and the memories that go with them. 'I believe in the power of suggestion and my paintings tend to hover between abstraction and figuration.

 

The resulting images are ambiguous rather than definitive. I like the idea that they will trigger a memory or a sensation by being recognisable or familiar in some way and the final interpretation is left open to the viewer.' Taking inspiration from her surroundings, she captures and translates a mood based on limitless horizons and the ethereal qualities of light affecting landscapes and seascapes.

 

Each painting offers a different perspective and possibility; sometimes dramatic, other times hazy and subdued. The viewer is invited to respond and react to them individually.
