GRAHAM DILLEY - Graham creates ink drawings, vivid watercolour and printmaking in his practice.  Graham creaetes Dry point etchings, which are then hand coloured with watercolour paints. - depicting  daily life in St Ives (where he lives) and the gardens and coasts of Cornwall whcih also strongly influence his work.  . Figures are often placed in abstract settings to represent states of mind and dream landscapes.  Images and colour represent the real and the unreal.  Graham has exhibitied throughout West Cornwall, most recently in Falmouth, Newlyn, Penzance and St Ives.

DORRIE KING - I am involved in exploring and extending letterpress. Instead of using traditional type I have made my own wooden blocks (type height) by slicing up family heirlooms - a bashed up Georgian chair, a woodworm-ridden hickory lacrosse stick, a barley twist chair leg, and other found wooden pieces which have a personal significance and which connect me to family and generations gone by. I am interested in natural erosion - the edges and interiors of my wooden blocks had either been eaten away with woodworm, or edges worn by many years of use. I sliced the furniture to type height and assembled the resulting cross sections in galleys, creating spaces between the blocks with strips of lead and letterpress equipment. I print these assembled plates under pressure using etching ink sometimes in intaglio, sometimes relief: I have incorporated chine colle, and multiple colour registrations. I am interested in grids, patterns and repetition; and in signs and symbols which result from this endeavour.

GRAHAM PULLEN - “My background in screen printing dates back to the 1970s when I first worked for a screen printer and then lecturer at the London College of Printing. However, the chemicals used at the time were highly toxic and damaging, so I decided instead to move on to another career.  But I never lost my love of printing, and the development of water-based inks was enough to entice me back to the printmaker fold. I find the flexible nature of screen printing entirely engrossing: whilst you can control and be very precise about the images you produce, the process also allows you to be highly experimental with media and colour.

ERIN LACY: Founder of 'Pick Pretty Paints'  Erins print studio is based in the Sloop Craft Markets in St Ives.  Erin creates lino cut, and screen prints using her own hand made printing inks. For this exhibition Erin is showing intimate colleograph prints inspired by natural forms.

ZOE EATON:  Zoes  usual  medium is paint on canvas, exploring  abstract, improvised mark making and organic forms.  Mono printing is a method which allows her to showcase her love of colour and organic mark making.   Her piece  'Print Run'   comprises multiple A5 prints , created from a   combination of  monoprints with tradiitonal printing inks on  glass plates, and  'Gelli' prints, - combining hand cut stencils and found objects, with acrylic paints.

Ann Kelley  Writer, photographer and artist,  creates  intimate mixed media and collage pieces - inspired by her immersion in the images ingrained from living by the sea.  The harbour boats, the pier, the tides, blue sky, cafe colours, and bunting.

Peter Ward is the one of the region’s primary advocate of painting with earth pigments, his research and knowledge inspiring people of all ages, interests and abilities nationally and internationally. Since 2008, he has exclusively used pigments gathered and processed by hand in Southwest UK.

LAUREN SEBASTIAN : THRESHOLD / 18 -  23  October 2021 

A special exhibition of intuitive artworks by Lauren Sebastian, that reflect on the difficult birth of only daughter Stormy (now aged four),  There were several thresholds encountered during the first ten days of Stormy's life: labour and birth, night to day, the brink of parenthood, betwixt life and death, not knowing and knowing, held breath and such prayerful longing. 

"BINOCULARS  II.  A SECOND LOOK".

5 - 18 June - Susi Gutierrez &  Graham Pullen / Binoculars II  is a presentation of works  by Susi Gutierrez and Graham Pullen at Barnoon Workshop Gallery.
