Introducing five women artists who each work in a different medium, and have exhibited together many times. So what is different this time? Their working title of ‘UnSeen’ refers to the fact that they are all excited to be developing new and somewhat experimental work: ideas which may have been brewing for a long time, but never yet realised. A few words from each will give a taste of the different interpretations.
” The sewing machine is used as an artist uses a paint brush, creating unique, stitched homewares inspired by our South Downs and changing seasons. The illumination of the lampshades brings the texture of the landscapes alive, reacting with fabric and stitch to reveal unseen detail”
“Unseen Expressions” invites viewers to explore hidden emotional landscapes through paintings. As an artist, Jane transforms daily experiences into visual narratives, a portal to the unseen. This exhibition unveils the power of colour and the compelling stories embedded in her art, inviting all to witness the unfolding of the unseen.
Jess calls to mind the patterns and textures that we pass over on our paths everyday: the wall with a small flower growing from it; the green moss in between the pavement cracks; the patterns and textures that are unseen in everyday life; the things that we pay no attention to until they are pointed out. This body of work explores the details of our world of beautiful landscape that are unseen, unheard and forgotten.
In this new work, Lorraine experiments with exposing seams and joins, which are usually hidden or disguised, drawing the eye with embellishment, and inviting you in to look beyond to hidden parts. Taking the time to explore the unseen facilitates an understanding of others, of objects and of our surroundings.
