Mermaids Purse - Stewart Richards

Four Views

What is hidden inside Stewart Richard’s Mermaids Purse? Look closer if you want to reveal the secrets of this exquisitely detailed work and others in the group show ‘Four Views’ which runs until Sunday 4 November. The four artists met at Northbrook Metropolitan College and each has a very different view of the world – from paintings that evoke wind and weather, to sculpture made from detritus on the beach.
