For Val Bonnett the surrounding landscape is a vital part of her inspiration, She walks the Suffolk fields, to portray the ever changing view, where space and the elements are translated into colour.


Some work is based on life studies and our relationship with the landscape;  the experience of  moving within it creates our own elemental energy.

This exhibition will span two rooms and the first presents life and smaller works. Sketches for work are in the second room which also contains coastal rivers and landscapes and garden works.

Val’s work is developed from sketches, some of which will be on view. They are a vital part of the painting process – caught in the moment with spontaneity.

Ron Simms, our previous CAS president described Val’s work as “intensely coloured abstract bands – paintings that send your senses reeling – Hockney-like red rocky mountain effects – a hint of Ivon Hitchens and a splatter of Delaunay in the bright coloured swirls”.
