Feet on the ground, head in the air
Suze Adams, Linda Ashe, Diana Pilcher
Friday 21st and Saturday 22nd April
Three artists come together to explore and assess the tangents and tensions in their works. Suze Adams’ practice focuses on body memory, examining different facets of the human condition through photography and sculpture; Linda Ashe’s practice explores lived experience resulting in a body of work examining rupture, restoration and reparation through film, sound and installation and Diana Pilcher will explore links between our physical and visual memories using black and white photography and drawing. At least one of the artists will be present in the gallery throughout so please join us to offer your thoughts/discuss the various works shown.

“I am a traditional figurative artists, I paint plein air in oils or watercolour. I gather painting inspiration through travel and visiting new places. I find myself drawn to domestic subject matter; complex interiors, gardens. I am a compulsive sketchbook keeper.
I am the only English oil painter/animator who worked on the film “Loving Vincent”, an animated feature film about the life of Vincent Van Gogh due for release in Autumn 2017.
