In a Visual Sense

Images of flesh, fable, flora, fauna and fabric

The eclectic and vibrant mix of art mediums, processes and ideas which come together in this exhibition at art@wintergarden showcase the diversity, depth and discipline of the artists so aptly described as “Images of flesh, fable, flora, fauna and fabric”.

The artists: John McClumpha, Gail Martin, Jen Boyd, Sue Baulch, Sue Harrington, Heather Stewart and Shirley Hurley studied together at Brougham School of Art & Photography in its heyday and have remained firm friends. While each works in isolation they help sustain their art practices with regular catch-ups to discuss art, politics and life in general over a glass of wine.

In the years since Brougham, each artist has gone in a different direction, finding their own niche and exploring the processes of printmaking, textiles, collage, drawing and painting. The privilege of travel has inspired McClumpha's unique view of Italian landscape in all its orderly splendour. A sensibility of the harshness of Moroccan life is the theme of Stewart's paintings and drawings. Observations of the human body by Hurley and Martin provide insights into the eternal vulnerabilities of the human condition and observing the minutia of the natural world is revealed through Boyd's watercolours. The works of Harrington and Baulch are process driven; Baulch painting from her plaster maquettes of animals and Harrington combining her dual interests of textiles and printmaking into intricate prints.

All these artists are in accord with the idea that new truths about the world can be discovered through the artist's unique visual sense.

The exhibition opens on 6 May at 5.30 and runs until 31 May
