Max Aiken

Exhibiting at Widcombe Social Club

NEW ARTIST: Max has been painting for many years. He has always preferred oils to other media, but uses water colour and pastel when the mood takes him.
When he travels he comes home inspired by the quality of the landscapes he has seen. The gap between realism and abstraction is where he seeks to interpret the scene/composition. He has recently introduced graphite to his work.

Bridget Baker

Exhibiting at Widcombe Social Club

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

Suya ChengShuya Cheng

Exhibiting at Widcombe Social Club

Born and brought up in Taiwan, I now live in Bath, UK. A self-taught artist having begun my journey working in the fashion industry, I spent time as a graphic designer before experimenting with abstract form in a variety of mediums.

I divide my time in my studio between using my sewing machine to explore patterns, shapes and structures found in the world around us through freehand machine embroidery and creating abstract paintings, primarily in acrylic but utilising a wide range of techniques and multi-media.

LHoldenW2Liz Holden White

Exhibiting at Widcombe Social Club

Lockdown brought the opportunity to pay more attention to seasonal changes. I have enjoyed painting through the year – finding tranquility in long winter evenings, the freshness of spring, the brightness of summer and the golden glow of autumn! The natural world is my inspiration- flowers, landscapes, waterfalls. I have lots of new paintings and cards to exhibit!

Lorelei Hunt

Mosaic is an intensive process where each individual piece is cut and placed by hand. I use a wide range of manufactured and found materials – unglazed ceramic, glass, china tile and found objects – to bring pattern, texture and colour to the work. I make mosaics for indoors or outside. I’ve been making mosaics for over 10 years and am a professional member of the British Association for Modern Mosaic.

Sue Porter

Exhibiting at Natural Theatre Company

My passion is architecture. The buildings and landmarks around us inspire my pictures. My ink drawings create the structure with an accent on the character of the architecture. I combine this with overlapping blocks of translucent colour inspired by graphics used in 1950’s posters. I introduce colour where appropriate to create a light hearted design. Limited Edition prints and cards.

Carol Symon

Exhibiting at St Matthew’s Church

My artwork involves many and often mixed, mediums and I explore extremely different subjects from serious to fun. Painting commissions of people, places, houses and animals are especially satisfying as they are so individual and personal.

Caspar Taylor

Exhibiting at St Matthew’s Church

Caspar’s recent sculpture combines his understanding of traditional materials and techniques, space and form with a contemporary spirit.

Whilst utilising the accidental, chaotic and the discarded his work, also, refers to the mathematical, engineered and organic.

Tim Williamson

Exhibiting at St Matthew’s Church

NEW ARTIST: Being an amateur artist frees me to paint in any style I want – it seems to be mostly post-impressionism. I enjoy painting pictures of Widcombe and my themes have been “lockdown” and the interface between buildings and nature (mainly trees).

Caroline Williams

Exhibiting at Natural Theatre Company
 
I mainly paint in acrylic but like to experiment with other media, including watercolour, charcoal and collage. I am inspired by the countryside and villages in my local area and much of my work tends to focus on scenes I have photographed on walks – footpaths and interesting buildings. I am keen on archaeology and looking at the changes man has made to the land.

Vicky YeatesVikki Yeates

Exhibiting at St Matthew’s Church

I am inspired by the British countryside and paint animals (particularly the hare) surrounded by tangling plants, weaving intricate patterns. I am intrigued by the change of season and the effect the sun and moon have on creatures and their environment. I often write poetry within the illustration, using an automatic writing approach, so that nothing is overly planned and the results are surprising.
