Emily Duchscherer Kirk
Abstract artist using & manipulating acrylic paint on canvas to make textured paintings. Nature inspired forms & human emotion are a huge inspiration & influence on her works.
Guest Artist: Adam Farrer
Central focus is attributed to threads of visual dialogue concerning social and political issues, the passage of time & its effect on our very existence. Intersecting subject matter often prominent with landscapes, habitat, architecture & environment. Running concurrently are thematic influences drawn from cult film and dystopian literature.
Guest Artist: Megan Wakelam
Megan Wakelam is inspired by the landscapes she immerses herself within. Concerned for the environment, Megan questions they impact of chemical-based media used as an artist. ‘Earth Maps’ is a series of work evolved through processes of adding marks with hand-made pigments from nature such as elderberries and dock leaves, which is developed at Clayhill Arts this summer, part of Somerset Art Works’ Creative Pathways Bursary.
Drop-in workshop every Saturday at 11 – 2pm.
