THE HEAVENS, 2017 by Tom Ireland
THE HEAVENS was an installation presented at ArebyteLASER in April 2017.
Welly Walk, 2016 by Helen Dryden
Walking about in mud and puddles in fields in North Eastern England. Acrylic on canvas.
All the time, I am thinking about painting. So even on a break to visit my family, I watched my step mother walk in the puddles, and thought about 'Blotter' by Peter Doig. Getting back to nature, and familial bonding is something we can all appreciate. I loved the light from the sky reflecting on the surface of the water, and the fact that a 69 year old woman could still enjoy walking in muddy puddles as much as a small child would.
Appealing to the Populous, 1st November - 1st December 2017 by Gillian Adair Mcfarland
