Gisela is mainly self-taught, because she says she is too wilful to accept and integrate any suggestions or rules. Every painting is a try not a mastery. She likes simplicity and magic. Her main theme is animals, because animals are both. Through them she paints little stories, or just expresses feelings or emotions of a simple life. But more and more she is drawn towards the mythological, mystic and dreamlike, where Angels do exist and Archetypes do emerge. She prefers oil on board and mixed media because she likes to experiment.

The Falls by Sarah Baker
Group Exhibition 19 October to 12 November 2010
“These are a few of my favourite things”. Everyone knows the song from the Sound of Music and we all have our “favourite things”. Among these could be an object such as a memento from a holiday, a gift from a loved one or a picture. It could be an aspect of nature such as a particular flower, tree or landscape or a certain type of weather. It could be a certain kind of food of drink. A favourite thing could also be something more intangible such as friendship, family life, certain qualities we value in people such as integrity, warmth or humour. Lastly, it could be a certain system of beliefs or moral values, which guide our lives.
Featuring art works by: Sarah Baker, Nadia Burns, Andrew Moore, Tigz Rice, Lorenz Widmaier, Yasmine Boulestin, Constance Slaughter, Charles McLaren, Dave Corcoran, Michelle Theodotou, Sally Shephar, Mary Pritchard and Leila Bibizadeh.

Susan Austin Exhibiting in the Glass Cabinet

Blyth Estuary 2009 by Susan Austin
‘I am exhibiting a group of small structures made from very basic materials: painted index cards held together with glue and thread and mounted on cardboard. Each year I make a few sketches during our trips to Norfolk and Suffolk, representing the usual places, all part of that fringe of marsh bordering the East Anglia coast. I had been trying to convert my drawings into paintings on canvas, but somehow I feel more comfortable with these layered constructions which clearly do not attempt to represent accurately the landscapes they are derived from. These were made this year, based on drawings I did in 2009. I quite like their tattiness, which suggests they lack the status of proper fine art. And I like that I can fold them up and carry them around in my bag, to open up and remind me of the places I love until the next time we go”
