Luisne: The Blush of Dawn in Tramore, Oil on Board.

Tudor Varga is a self-taught artist and Radiographer in the Radiology Department at UHW. Tudor began painting three years ago as a way to slow down and be more present. He is still exploring his artistic style but enjoys combining loose brushwork with tiny details, right down to capturing a single blade of grass in an idyllic country scene or the foam of a wave as it rushes to shore. Speaking about Colour, Tudor states, ‘Nature inspires me and my goal is to capture the spectacle of beauty that nature offers us. I hope to transport the viewer to the scene by capturing the delicate dance between light and nature. Colour is the sister of light; it brings warmth to dawn, serenity to sunsets, humble boldness to autumn, fury to the ocean and purity to snow.’
