77 High Street
Exhibition featuring the work of Peter Clayton, Laine Tomkinson, Catherine Headley and Tim Southall. All four artists work have a level of crossover between the respective practices of painting and printmaking and each artist will be showing a number of works that reflect the relative influences from one medium to the other.
Tim Southall builds his work is metaphysics: existence, objects and their properties, space and time, cause and effect, and possibility. Using these guides, he expresses how he sees and experiences the world, mostly through the landscape or the figure in the landscape.
Catherine Headley, Granite & Blue, collograph, 10 x 10cm
Catherine Headley’s inspiration comes from visits to Penwith in Cornwall, a magical land encircled by seas. Colours, intensified by the dazzling Atlantic light, are the gorse and the heather, sea and sky, the strident greens and yellows and orange-gold of lichens on granite and a multitude of greys.
.Laine Tomkinson’s work represents specific experiences when painting or printing, orchestrating a personal array of shapes and marks, then building up layers of colours to develop an image that is both true to the initial sensation and which – hopefully- quickens the pulse.
Peter Clayton’s landscapes are inspired by travels and environments closer to home. Rather than being of a single viewpoint the pictures are an amalgamation of experiences. Some are based on specific places others more about the mood or physical attributes of a type of environment.
