“How does one convey the experience of relating to the environment: the visual and sensory stimuli, an awareness of its history and essential instability? Four artists find metaphors."


Sally Cole, Anny Evason, Denise Franklin and Sarah Palmer work in Stable Studios on the edge of the country park, near Fairlight. 
With respective backgrounds in printmaking, painting, drawing and clay, the artists share their passions in this exhibition of new work

Sally Cole
Sally uses an endlessly evolving vocabulary of marks. None are casual, even happenstance is reworked into an act full of intention,
and the works are kept open by a process of constant questioning.

Anny Evason
Anny Evason’s approach has a wild, imaginative energy. Her paintings, like the best fairy tales seduce with a combination of lyricism and violence.

Denise Franklin
Denise Franklin’s meticulously drawn, yet meandering, web-width lines, trace energy through time. When these tracked moments reach myriad proportions they embody the huge forces which form a hillside or towering sea.

Sarah Palmer
The solidity of Sarah’s scaled down, iconic ceramic structures melts within their veils of light and fine washes of colour, the delicate dislocations of her fine, free drawing.
