The exhibition includes work by Colchester’s, Linda Martucci, whose hand-built clay sculptures are informed by the work of Modigliani, Giacometti and Henry Moore. Fellow Colchester artist, David Trenow, is exhibiting a series of sculptures carved directly from slate, each one a unique work of art, and Moira Goodall’s work is inspired by the natural beauty of the Essex salt marshes. Her handmade vessels are decorated with the ancient technique of smoke-firing, making each piece unique. Work of a larger scale will be shown by Writtle artist, Tim Corke, whose medium of choice is Alabaster, which he carves into shapes that celebrate the natural qualities of each piece of stone. Another local artist creating zen-like forms is Ian Knowles, who carves his sculptures from concrete into shapes that evoke water-smoothed rocks and organic structures, some of which are cast in bronze, whilst others are hand-painted.
Other artists whose work features in the exhibition are: Alan Ball, Tove Bowyer, and Emily Myers.
