Another exhibition - another artist. So what’s new…well this one may be local (sixty years in Woodbridge) but the intention is to turn local townscapes and quirky streets from the ordinary into the eye catching. No gimmicks, though. It’s painting in the classical sense but hopefully, not stuffy or old hat. The aim is to celebrate tradition in a way that is still relevant in our time. There are other subjects, of course, such as people, boats and landscapes and the style moves substantially - different ideas and subjects need a different approach, this artist believes. In the end, he concedes, the view of good painting and its relevance is in the eye of the beholder. Words are not enough.

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.

Sanctuary Art-Photography

thumbnail (1).jpeg

Sanctuary Supported Living (SSL) provides accommodation and support services to thousands of young people and adults across the country.

This autumn our young people have been engaged in an Art-photography course with local photographer (& key worker)   David Perkins.

The course took in ‘portraiture’, ‘photography as storytelling’ and ‘street photography’ and I’m sure you’ll agree there are some talented photographers on display.

The students were encouraged to express themselves artistically and have guided the focus of the course and curated the exhibition themselves.

The exhibition will be on for 2 days: Friday 3rd   and Saturday 4th November. Images on display will be offered for sale and any profits will return to the photographers themselves.

We thank all our supporters and those whose hard work has helped to make this exhibition possible.
