Alchemy of the Imagination
Showcasing 3 artists
Jayne Lennard – Sculptures inspired by the written word. Jayne transforms discarded objects and captures the intrinsic magic of the fairy tale.
Amanda Caines – Contemporary jewellery made from found and discarded pieces that were once worn and loved. Glass, semi-precious stones and vintage jewellery lend a sense of history and continuity.
Andrea McLean – Paintings and etchings of imaginary maps. Green umber roads branch like a Jesse Tree. Built up slowly in layers of earth pigments, manganese blues, vermillions and madder lakes. Andrea charts her day to day experiences of the turning world.
A bathroom full of nudes by the illustrator, Martina Jirankova-Limbrick. Martina was born in the Czeck republic and came to Britain to study illustration. Her artwork has been used in poetry and children’s books.
Welsh landscapes by new artist Andy Parker, who studied Fine Art at Central St. Martin’s and the Art Academy. His landscape work has been described as evocative and atmospheric and his pochade oil sketches much admired and collected.
William Brown’s widow has kindly given us access to his lino and wood blocks. From these blocks there will be a new series of prints, including his iconic bears.
A small collection of new paintings by Kumar Saraff- ‘The Grwyne Fechan Valley Series’ which includes views of Table Mountain, Sugarloaf and Skirrid Fawr – a taste of an exhibition of local landscapes planned for 2012.
