Angie Munro: For as long as I remember I have felt an emotional response to the idea of life flowing through time. It is both exhilarating and comforting to feel a part of a whole, to be connected to human history, to the natural world, to a continuum. This sense of connection is now threatened and therefore seems more precious than ever.
Catherine Harvey Jefferson: Catherine is the third generation of seafarers and painters of her family. Her work rooted in the landscape tradition explores journeying, a yearning for departure and return. Colour plays an important role in her work, grown out of the intense light at the edge of the land where it meets the ocean.
Julia Giles: I grew up on a farm in west Cornwall. The experience of working on the land and that sense of powerlessness against the elements which determined success or failure of a crop has always stayed with me. I incorporate the actions of rain and wind directly into the process of mark making; the outcome is always unpredictable.
Sandra Boreham: Nature is the inspiration for my work and living in the Caribbean for twelve years enhanced this and gave me access to wonderful woods like mahogany. I work intuitively with gifted woods and try to capture the energy and movement of it - then I juxtapose the wood with manmade materials like bronze or recycled steel.
