Romantic Paintings of Youth by Terry-Pauline Price


Australian artist Terry-Pauline Price is a painter whose romantic depictions of youth are meant to rekindle memories of a time now past. Her work features a young feminine figure enjoying the great outdoors. We see a girl picking berries, painting a picture, jumping rope, and playing with a friend. Price's brush strokes are very gestural and energetic, reminiscent of an Impressionist painting. Their vibrant and warm color palette illustrates many happy times.

Nature plays a large role in Price's work. It's where her character is free to explore and cultivate special relationships with the animals of the forest, like the Magpie. The bird is both part of the landscape as well as a symbol in Greek mythology and something that inspires the painter. It serves as the re-incarnated Muses, the daughters of Zeus who represent beauty, grace, and the arts.

The lively yet serene compositions make us feel nostalgic for the days when we were young. They romanticize the carefree nature of being a kid, when there was endless free time and the only obligation was to come home when street lights came on. As Price’s paintings convey simpler times, we yearn to hear birds chirp and feel the warm sun on our face.
