All three have very different approaches when it comes to landscape but unite around the single theme of ‘Time ‘ which is embedded in their work .
Chris employs an ever shifting window into time and says ‘ When I look at a landscape I can’t help but think what I know about it . The way it has been made or the way it looks this morning as opposed to this evening , these ideas are just as inspiring and attractive as the surface forms in-front of me .’
Chris produces small Giclée editions from drawn and paper collaged originals.
In Amanda’s work Boat trips around Newhaven and walking the Cuckmere Valley are remembered and recreated through careful collaging and layering of fabric or paper. Often presented in series her work aims to re-create auditory , atmospheric and visual sensations associated with moving through the landscape.
Fabric work is often finished with hand or machine embroidery and paper works with drawing media .
David’s ‘ Colour Flows ‘ series revolves around his ‘ Time, Place , and States of Mind ‘ philosophy . Drawing on patterns created by the rise and fall of the sea David uses colour to create fluid geometric patterns woven around a grid structure . Repeating but never quite the same, these patterns ebb and flow across the picture plane mimicking the rise and fall of the tide . Originally created as paintings, the works on show are Fine Art Giclée prints .
These three artists have produced a thought provoking show that will widen anyone’s ideas of what a ‘ landscape ‘ can be . The artists will be present throughout much of the exhibition to discuss their work and answer any questions .
