CHRISTINE McKECHNIE

WATERCOLOUR PAINTED PAPER COLLAGES

6th – 11th. June 2019    10.00am – 5.00pm daily 

I am a watercolour collage artist. I use hand-painted paper, which is cut, applied and layered; employing many hundreds of pieces to produce my pictures.

I have had many one woman shows in London and elsewhere.

I have exhibited at the RA Summer Exhibition, the Glyndebourne Festival and the Chelsea Arts Club.

I have written a book on the art of collage, published by Search Press. Images of my work are held by the Bridgman Art Library.

I was a founder member of Artworks and open my studio annually with Suffolk Open Studios.

My future events can be seen on my website www.christinemckechnie.co.uk

4PRINTmakers are a group of women artists working in East Anglia who came together over four years ago to share their work and practice

Georgie Finn comes from a background of ceramics and illustration. Her prints reflect a love of decorative pattern and are inspired by the illustrator printmakers of the mid twentieth century.

Anne Townshend finds inspiration in the beauty of the Suffolk landscape which she expresses through the medium of print.

Miranda J Chapman is inspired by the wilder landscapes of East Anglia, particularly marshes and mudflats. Her works include etchings and monoprints.

INKY FINGERS MAY 2019

Inky Fingers is a group of printmakers who have come together attending an Evening Class in Printmaking at the University of Suffolk in Ipswich.

Both professional and amateur artists, all with their own individuality and way of working, many have been making prints for a number of years, so the level of expertise is very high.

This show introduces a new portfolio of prints entitled ‘Flight’. Most of us have made a print on this theme, and we hope that you enjoy the results.

This is the first group exhibition by a diverse bunch of life long artists. They met by chance when they relocated or returned to the Suffolk coast in 2016. The group comprises both painters and printmakers. Each works individually but meet once a month to share inspiration, encouragement and produce experimental collaborative work (aka messing about). These have included a large scale mixed media monochrome piece, a concertina book, collage work and a short film submitted for the Venice Biennale.

Jim Nind

thumbnail-5.jpg

Felixstowe-based artist Jim Nind presents a new body of mixed media paintings which playfully interweave painting, photography, and digital design.

Pushing at the boundaries to what David Hockney refers to as “the tyranny of the rectangle” Jim’s recent work seeks to escape his own use of multiple images patch-worked within tight and containing grid compositions; breaking out in interesting ways. Paralleling this compositional challenge, and drawing upon the power and fragility of the natural world, Jim’s work develops a metaphor around the relationship between organic life and made structures.

Jim will be in-situ throughout the exhibition. More information on Jim and his work is available on his website; www.autoverse-art.co.uk

image1-1.jpg

Carol Pask

Carol is a ceramic artist working in stoneware and porcelain, combining traditional methods to create sculptural pieces, which are often fused with metal, wood or slate. Shapes and images are distilled into non-representational interpretations with just the essence remaining in the finished sculptural work.

Gillian Plummer

Gillian’s images are ‘intricate, truly original, arresting, and never to be forgotten’. She is a photographer who looks for art in the natural world. Nature for her is the spirit of life and she is truly inspired by it.

Cyndi Speer

Cyndi is greatly inspired by the beauty of landscapes, and the nature that is within. Her technique of wide brushstrokes that are overlain with finer, delicate details, together with the inclusion of patterns have often been described as being ‘dreamlike’ and ‘surreal’.

SBP Collection

Screen Shot 2019-01-30 at 17.25.08.png

This will be a unique showing of paintings, prints and 3D works that I have carefully selected and cherished, over my time spent as a practising artist. Initially it was not my intention to amass a collection, but through the experience of exhibiting and mixing with other accomplished artists I found myself continually making discoveries and wanting to take them home; thereby surrounding myself with beautiful inspirational artworks. Showing my appreciation towards other artists has also meant a lot. In recent years I have focused on having an exhibition of my collection. Having lived in Suffolk for 22 years, the works mainly feature East Anglian artists, but there are also works from further afield. The show will include recent acquisitions as well as older works, with a wide range of price points.

Painting with a camera Geoffrey Thomas

Painting with a camera Geoffrey Thomas

Open 10 - 5 pm every day

At age 63 I started taking night time images while living in London in May 2016.

Now based in Suffolk, I use the same technique, letting the camera paint the images with the help of my hands. After visiting several locations both in England and ThailandI I have a much better understanding of how the camera can create very different , and at times mesmerising “Paintings” successfully.

The qualities of images recorded reminds me of actual works of art, so I have called my technique "Painting with a Camera".

I look forward to visitors my at exhibition in Woodbridge where I will be available in person, and also my website at www.geoffreythomas.co.uk with your constructive comments."

TOGETHER AGAINST SIZEWELL C

thumbnail-1.jpg

TASC hope to raise awareness of what we have and what we will lose to Sizewell C (SZC) through this exposition of artwork depicting our precious Heritage coastline and the surrounding marshes, heaths and woodlands. Local artists, including Maggi Hambling, have loaned us examples of their work and TASC is very grateful for their generosity and solidarity with our cause: to stop SZC and save our crumbling coast and future generations from the completely unnecessary burden of housing lethal radioactive waste here for hundreds of years to come.

On Saturday 16th from 2-4pm, TASC Chairman Pete Wilkinson, co-founder of Greenpeace UK, will be giving a series of short talks on the implications of SZC and will be happy to answer questions on EDF’s 3rd consultation. 

Please come along to express your concerns or just to take a look at the Exhibition.

John Roberts

thumbnail.jpg

Woodbridge painter, John Roberts, loves his home town which is why so many of his oils rejoice in the quirky old streets of this beautiful medieval working town. Although he’s a relative newcomer (just about 60 years) it was love at first sight.

Roberts spent most of that time working in art and photography at the studio next to the Riverside Theatre. The Studio is run these days by his daughter and partner so now there is more time for painting.

While the emphasis is always on the town, Roberts often changes direction in subjects on a whim - perhaps following a trip, perhaps an interesting commission sometimes simply the challenge.

“Art of all kinds”, he says, “is the great freedom for us all. No boundaries or fences; no monthly contracts, data updates or passwords…wonderful.”

Kate Giles Recent Work

thumbnail Kate.jpeg

Francis Bacon wondered just how possible it was in a painting to “catch the mystery of appearance within the mystery of making”. Having spent much of my life living and working in East Anglia, in Suffolk until a few years ago and latterly back in Norfolk where I grew up, my work is increasingly concentrated upon the elusive yet distinct spirit of place. Through the process of drawing and memory the mind’s eye, or ”the eye’s mind”, is galvanised, alert to a particular landscape’s volatility, resonance and rhythms. How to make appearance come in? Through painting I aim to energise and make active the space in which the picture is hung.

The Garden House Studios ... Martin Coe ... Nicola Coe

The Garden House Studios

Martin Coe ... Nicola Coe

Exhibition of works from the past year ...

Husband and wife artists Martin and Nicola Coe live in Hasketon, just outside Woodbridge where they both work from their own studios in the garden.

Both will be showing a range of works.

Martin uses drawing as his primarily way to make his images.

He works with a range of media which includes charcoal and pencil on both a large, and small scale. Some of the work is drawn on location whilst other pieces are built up from studies. After a break from painting Martin has begun to use oil paints again producing work which reflects his relationship with the Suffolk environment and surroundings. The paintings often deal with different views from the drawings, as each process calls for a differing response and working process.

Nicola is a multi-disciplinary artist.

Working with contact printing techniques, natural dyes and home made oak gall ink she makes a variety of paper works and artists books, along with a range of wearable art ‘foraged’. Working from nature, foraging in garden and landscape for keepsakes of memory such as feathers and leaves, her work attempts to evoke a sense of looking more deeply at the beauty of nature and in so doing perhaps encouraging us all to protect and cherish our environment a little more...
