Living In Colour

With brand new work from painters Anne-Marie Butlin and Emma Dunbar, this exhibition celebrates the magical moments of the every day. Both Anne-Marie and Emma show a capacity to capture singular moments in time with vibrant colours and every day objects. Despite their differences in painterly language, these artists share a love for simplicity and each drive to show how snapshot moments in the home or in nature can transform into evocative paintings.

This new collection from Emma Dunbar is a wonderfully varied selection of paintings in scale, composition and subject matter. Emma's paintings show a distinct and competent use of composition with elements drawing all the way through from foreground to background with the same level of care and intensity. With a clever comprehension of space and form, Emma's paintings often depict still life scenes and vistas with detailed decoration along side block colours. These paintings collect objects and scenes with such emotion, making this series of works wonderfully unique and spirited.

Anne-Marie Butlin's talent as a painter has never been more apparent as in this selection of paintings. With a combination of overall compositions filled to the brim with movement along side more traditional still life scenes- these paintings contain beautifully handled mark making. Anne-Marie uses a slightly blocked off signature mark with a flat headed brush thus creating a layered effect and giving the paintings great depth. Anne-Marie's colours are incredibly well observed and light and dark cleverly balanced. In this collection in particular, Anne-Marie has produced paintings with more background space which pushes everything in the foreground right to the viewers attention. This is an exciting new direction of Anne-Marie's work and we are thrilled to be showing this new focus.

Alongside these great painters, we have brand new work from Ali Tomlin and a full collection from Sue Binns. Both with their excellent handling of material, these potters show the different ends of the spectrum within ceramics- Ali focusing on the sculptural and fluid capacity of porcelain and Sue producing incredibly tactile table wear. Not only do these ceramic collections provide a wonderful accompaniment to our exhibition, they are also featured within our painters work. With still life scenes peppered with Ali's vases and floral arrangements in Sue's signature stripes.
