LORRAINE BEWICK
Lorraine’s paintings of the Wash and North West Norfolk capture isolated panoramas and luminosity and involve a pursuit of things that are indistinct, elusive and ever-changing. She strives for paintings with a liquid, viscous quality where ambiguities of surface and reflection and of depth and distance can combine to convey the ambiguities of land, sea and sky.

TOR FALCON
Tor is an artist who walks. Walkers can not help but be aware of the make up of the earth beneath their feet. Of the changing sounds, temperatures and light levels as they move through a landscape. They pass sheltered spots where tender plants flourish and others where trees are brutally sculpted by the prevailing wind A walker knows the real distance between here and there. Walking is the basic human act of belonging on, and experiencing this planet.

PANDORA MOND
The ambiguity of names for Pandora’s paintings do not represent actual seas but rather imagined universal ones. Pandora wants them to have an immersive quality and to evoke rather than describe the space. It is for the viewer to find their place within them, which could be a meditation or stimulation. The tension between the beauty and cruelty of the sea, of threat and solace is something she explores in these works.

TIM SIMMONS
