Biography / CV of Veda Hallowes

Veda Hallowes was born and brought up in South Africa, Veda began her working life as a nurse. Having reached the top of her career, she resigned to study first, music, and then ceramics. She moved to England in 1971, and attended art, ceramics, Chinese painting and sculpture courses 1971 to 2000, while bringing up a family and working as a sculptor, and porcelain potter.

By 1996 her work was almost exclusively sculptural and moving away from figurative pieces. Instead, drawing inspiration from softly rounded fruits and their intimation of fertility and association with the female figure, her work consisted of "Fruits" ranging in size from 10 to 70cms.

Currently she concentrates on wall pieces. She works primarily in bronze with wonderful and unusual patinas, though sometimes she works in other media.

The object of Veda`s spill pieces is to engage the imagination - for the viewer to become creator, and delight in the impossible and fantastical.

Artist Statement of Veda Hallowes

For me, my art is about enhancement and the exploration which comes from freeing the imagination.
There is so much ugliness in the world, alongside the beauty and wonder that I need to make my small contribution a positive and enriching experience.
