A fortuitous meeting at a workshop at the Bluecoat resulted in these four artists collaborating and having fun on a regular basis.
We are lucky to have them back again showing new works and bringing us up to date with what they've been up to.
Captivated by the alchemy of colour and versatility of enamel, Ruth creates a wide variety of work. She uses the interplay between enamelling and printmaking to develop exciting new pieces in both mediums.
Susie is influenced by landscape, textures and colour which she interprets in an abstract style using and combining different techniques. Travel is a great source of inspiration, especially if a foreign workshop is involved.
Chris and Loraine fell in love with the magic of printmaking after joining a workshop with Alan Birch in 1993. Chris is interested in both natural and man-made forms. His work ranges from capturing the essence of figurative subjects using the simplest of tools and materials, to producing graphic geometric images using photosensitive plate. Loraine is inspired by her love of nature and visits to museums. She enjoys experimenting and discovering the best technique for a particular image.
