Martha Holmes & Sarah Woods: Emerging

13th March - 1st April 2020

Martha Holmes & Sarah Woods: Emerging

Emerging - becoming apparent or prominent.

After graduating from Falmouth University, Sarah Woods in 2016 and Martha Holmes in 2018, both women decided on careers as artists based right here in Cornwall. In the years that have followed we have hosted their inaugural solo shows, and watched as their following both close to home and further afield has consistently grown. Apart from Beside The Wave, both artists have taken on challenging private commissions, both taken up residencies in St. Ives. Through raw talent, hard work and determination it is safe to say Holmes and Woods are now prominent contributors to the local art scene and we are excited to see what they do next.

The current collections have been produced by painting and drawing in plein-air, inspired by the Cornish landscape, and the changing forms between land and sky. Through Holmes's paintings and Wood's etchings, this joint exhibition will see the artists exploring their surrounds, visiting familiar locations as well as new throughout the winter months in Cornwall.

"Each print begins with a sketchbook drawing that is slowly worked into a polymer etching and printed to a limited edition in the studio. When working with a plate my practice of printmaking focuses on the movement of ink and the direction of hand-drawn lines, becoming familiar with the marks unique to each piece." - Sarah Woods

" I am fascinated by the shifting identity of both the north and south coastlines, my work is a reaction to the changing light, structures and colours that surround me whilst I paint. Process and the space I work in has always been important - working directly within the landscape allows an immersive experience, reflected in the brush strokes and energy of the work. " - Martha Holmes
