Abigail Hope 1Abigail Hope

Exhibiting at 1 Natural Theatre Company

NEW ARTIST: I work in mixed media and acrylic canvas. I am inspired mainly by nature, and the world around me. I work with resin and texture to show dimension. Each piece has multiple ways in which you can view it and see new aspects. I have been developing my technique through experimentation and try to push my skills with each piece

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. Much of my work tends to focus on places I have come across on walks, and I try to capture their particular atmosphere.
 

Caspar Taylor

Exhibiting at 1 Hatfield Buildings

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.

 

Flight 1, Jessica PalmerJessica Palmer

Exhibiting at 7 St Mark’s Road

Jessica Palmer is a landscape artist, combining paper collage and watercolour techniques. I mix illustration, paper cutting and painting together to create paper tapestries. These depict imaginary scenes in real and existing landscapes around the country, bringing into view the multitude of wild and unseen birds, plants and creatures; drawing attention to the endangerment posed to wild spaces by human activity

Sarah Lewis (2)Sarah Lewis

Exhibiting at Widcombe Baptist Church

NEW ARTIST: Handblocked scarves in silk or wool. I enjoyed the craftier side of the textile course at Bath Spa University, and when I had my own studio I became more interested in pattern and block printing. Lino is my mainstay. I print on wool and silk, buying the silk scarves ready hemmed and dyeing them before printing. I usually retain the natural colour of the wool.

Silver Clocks, Vikki YeatesVikki Yeates

Exhibiting at Widcombe Baptist Church

I am inspired by the British countryside and paint animals (particularly the hare) surrounded by tangling plants and 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 have recently been experimenting more with poetry, so that this begins to resonate within the illustration, adding more depth and meaning to the painting.
