Emily Joy is a sculptor and installation artist. Her practice examines why and how experience is mediated by the imperfect copies of memory, language and image and is particularly concerned with trace (grammatical, photographic or the cast) in relation to memory.
Maggie Shaw and Noela Bewry
7 – 13 August
Maggie Shaw and Noela Bewry are abstract painters showing work which, on the one hand, has routes in landscape and the forces of nature and on the other hand evolves through a process of improvisation and change.
14 -20 August
The decorative is both in the heavily patterned nature of my paintings, woven into my work perhaps by the presence of my mother’s textile business, and the celebration of the seasonal changes around the Gloucestershire valleys where I live. I work in oils for the joy of using such a juicy material, but drawing, for it’s honesty and simplicity is just as important.
21 – 27 August
My work explores the physicality and process of painting through imaginary spaces. Mainly large abstract pieces.
28 August -3 September
David's work takes the aesthetics of the macabre along with elements of the tradition of Catholic and Christian art and mixes it with a dash of pop art sensibility.
