We will welcome two landscape artists to the Granary Art Gallery for a selling exhibition of their recent works throughout October.
Lisa Henderson uses a variety of materials to focus on texture and surfaces to echo the landscape. In addition to using collaged recycled papers to build up layers, she adds chalk, paint and graphite to add a sense of depth to her works. To achieve patternation, she applies techniques often associated with printmaking such as wiping and scratching to achieve the crisp qualities her work possesses.
Lisa studied Fine Art and Art History at Nottingham University and the Courthauld Institute, London. Since her appointment as a lecturer in Art and Design and as Visual Arts Officer for the West Midlands she has exhibited in a number of selected solo exhibitions based in Stafford, Leicestershire, Surrey and London.
Philip Huckin will be exhibiting a selection of his highly detailed landscape drawings and paintings, many of which are based on the Welsh countryside. His attention to colour and clarity are cleary shown in his paintings; the use of light and shadow, along with his ability to illustrate depth with varying tones create uplifting images for any home.
Philip has spent 33 years in education, spending 24 years teaching art in secondary schools. Having recently completed his masters in painting from Aberystwyth University, Philip now lives in West Wales and concentrates on producing these works of art.
