Bridget Baker

Exhibiting at Bewdley House

Bridget Baker makes small animals from galvanized wire, which are then coloured with enamel paints. Working from drawings and photographs, any vertebrate animal can be tackled – fish, frogs, reptiles, birds or mammals, although most popular seem to be farm and domestic animals, particularly people’s individual pets. The enjoyment of their creation comes from making them as realistic as possible and from capturing their characters with the minimum of lines.

Sarah Ball

Exhibiting at Priory Coach House, 52a Lyncombe Hill

NEW ARTIST: Handling a sketchbook, collecting objects, earth and materials whilst walking freely in both the countryside and the coastpath gives me inspiration to approach my work in an experimental way. I prefer a mixed media approach or a pure watercolour method. Whilst back in the studio I prefer the painting to develop slowly, often working on a series at a time.

Usha Pearce

Exhibiting at 28 The Tyning

Process and experimentation with oil paint and other media are critical in the way I work. Although abstract, there is an underlying visual order that emerges in response to a theme. I build, obliterate, erase, paint over and scratch into the surface, leaving the traces of markings and scars of what has gone before.

Agnes is a Dutch artist, living in Freshford. She paints contemporary still-life and abstracts in oil: “Drawn to the play of light on a reflective surface, painting is for me about observation and capturing light. This way of observing, this pure focus, is very meditative and calming. I hope to convey a sense of stillness and serenity in my work.”
