Sylvia McEwan - Artists - Pryor Fine Art

Drawing on references as diverse as Classicism and Cubism my work shifts between the figurative and the abstract. Although it evolves from the representational and moves through to the abstract, my work retains the influences and inspirations from which they were conceived. Whilst the subject matter is important, the true subject is always; space, form, structure and balance.
