Nature forms the basis of both Linda’s and John’s work, but their approach in style and medium is very different, resulting in a varied and evocative show.

About

Linda’s work explores her fascination with surfaces, textures and colours and the responses, both emotional and psychological, that these elements can provoke.  She uses collage, fabrics and stitch as well as lino and mono-printing, collagraph, drawing and painting, manipulating her materials to experiment and reveal in an intuitive way. In this process she is also exploring the connections between our exterior and interior worlds.

Inspiration is drawn from the land and seascapes of Australia, rock formations in Norway, beaches in Cornwall, and woods and lakes closer to home. Linda is aiming to evoke a memory of a place and time experienced, as well as opening the doors to new – as yet unexplored – vistas.

John’s photographic work is inspired by landscape and especially trees which he feels are imbued with both spiritual and visual qualities. Working intuitively when editing his photographs he is searching for structures, patterns and textures that reimagine the components of the landscape into new visual experiences.

He is also fascinated by the concept of symmetry which is found in so many forms of art and nature.  He endeavours to create work that has a meditative quality and allows the viewer the opportunity to discover hidden worlds. His artworks are constructed as photo collages as their composition is a result of a process of experimentation both with scale and the choice of paper to enhance the image.
