9 Artists Exhibition - Truman Brewery
Edith Pargh BartonI create paintings which embody a sense of mystery and wonder. They express an idealized view of a creative landscape where ideas, emotions and memories can play together.
Jane CattlinMy current work has a Pop Art feel. My subject matter is figures or portraits of existing or imaginary people all with an abstract edge
Avis Lane WillanShapes, colours, textures. I follow the paint where it leads, often with no subject at the beginning- sometimes one emerges. Looking to form interesting relationships, subtle, bold and sensuous.
Carolyn MacleodI have been trying to find a way to make moss with its glowing colours and delicate, tiny intricacy become monumental in a sublime landscape.
Juliet RobertsonJuliet Robertson - new work, PEOPLE. Street scenes or in the park. People meeting, chatting, arguing or just passing by. Life. www.julietrobertsonart.com
Judith SmithDifferent subjects grab my attention and series of paintings emerge. I make an expressive, emotional and spontaneous response to my chosen subject, painting mainly in oils
May - 2015 - A Busy Month
May is a busy month, finalising and signing off the brochure for the next academic year and updating the website. I fly to the Algarve to teach for a week in the glorious setting of sandy beaches and landscape. The summer term at the studio is always very productive. Students resolving so many paintings after having spent the whole year developing their painterly language and themes in their work. Then we are looking forward to the Summer Schools when Katie and I get the chance to teach together and enjoy being outside in the Landscape.
