Joanne Radnor's, Another body of work, 06/02/20 - 17/02/20

Joanne's continued exploration with the female form is sure to delight

with this extraordinary exhibition,

Another body of work.

Her use of colour and movement create a symphony celebrating the female form needed to be experienced in person. 

Pastel & Paint - Jennifer Paull - 20/02/20-24/02/20

Artist Statement: As an artist I try to develop paintings that speak both to myself and to others about the beauty and drama that exists in the play of light and colour on all things. I'm excited by the rich and refined colours and dramatic tones of pastels which, when used in layered strokes, blend to vibrate light and create movement to the subject. I use a direct tonal approach and try to apply the medium, either pastel or oil, in a confident and loose manner. In this mixed exhibition of oils and pastels i have tried to convey these feelings to capture dramatic images of people, places and objects.

Origins and Connections by Trudi Harley - 27/02/20-09/03/20

Everyday items hung from a string in the fashion of the Spanish Bodegon Painters, these paintings examine historical gathering; they evoke memories and return us to the past. History we are told is the study of past events, particularly in human affairs and relates to a place that we are no longer in - we are still connected to but cannot physically go back to. As a form of revisiting we sift through the remnants of what we have and what we once were; we calculate and comprehend the changes within ourselves in an attempt to give relevance to our current reality. I draw on my own reflections of upbringing, rural domesticity and everyday life events that contribute to the perception of what makes me who I am. Through referencing themes & objects drawn from the everyday l explore the notion that shared memories contribute to a sense of belonging & community.
