Exhibition at Mulberry Room, Shelley Theatre, Bournemouth 2018

As part of this exhibition we held an Artists in Conversation event. 

Three of us spoke about our work, Linda Sale, Young-Joo Shin and myself. It was fascinating the similarities in the origins of the work. The theme of Burning Bush ran through all our work and yet we had never spoken about this before. I’m interested in uncovering layers and seeing what lies beneath, but with ‘Burning Bush’ on the left and ‘Kindling’ on the right, this is also about a kind of alchemy. It’s about transformation and internal fire.


Exhibition at Shaftesbury Arts Centre 2018

We had a great time in Shaftesbury, the exhibition venue is gorgeous with its pristine white walls and the local people were so warm and friendly. 

In the painting ‘Water Lilies’ below, I’m revisiting the subject of water surface. The silver paint has reflective qualities like water itself.

Barbados 2018

This wonderful island was a gem of inspiration. Every morning I would wake up to the most incredible bird song, interspersed by frantic tooting of local bus horns. We were staying in a private house and making most of our own food so it felt more like living in Speightstown than being on vacation.

Knoll Gardens 2017

Solo Show and Residency

Being Artist in Residence at the beautiful Knoll Gardens, Wimborne was an amazing opportunity to connect with nature and deepen my practice. The gardens are unusually natural, almost wild and that allowing of the plants to find their own form, appears to bring a quality of stillness, that in the normal hurly burly of life is hard to find.
My four months at Knoll culminated in an exhibition of the work created and these were displayed in the gardens themselves. We had a lovely private view one evening, when the gardens were closed to the public.

The Crypt Gallery

Branches, which are covered in human hair, appear to be growing from the walls like roots.

Vulnerable Dwelling

Our home is the place where we feel safe and secure.   For a few months I was without a home and alternated between one hotel room, for two adults and three children, and my sisters spare room.  I realise that I was incredibly fortunate to have had these resources and not have been on the street.  The emotional impact of this time has left a physical imprint on my body and the echo of these feelings of uncertainty and fear form the basis for my works in this exhibition.

The national charity for single homeless people is close to may heart.  I don’t understand how in a civilised society people are living on the streets.Art in Crisis  Crisis logo

  1. WhereHouse with it’s diverse art work was both interesting and enjoyable, and definitely worth travelling the 250 mile journey to see!

    • Thanks David, I’m so glad you enjoyed it. Hope you’ll be able to come to next exhibition too.

  2. Love how the subject shifts from the canvas to the canvas and viewer, just as the artist shifts from the painter to the photographer; a unique combination of artistic mastery and serendipity. Also love the bold yellow and black pallet (both the canvas and the viewer’s dress), against the gentle grey. Thank you Inga!
