HORIZONS WITHOUT BORDERS - CATH WILLIAMS

17 June to 3 July

Cath Williams works with the landscape as a means to represent the environment in both the minutiae of hues and contrasts and the expansive effect of layers blurring, and layering textures, line and colour. Her works reflect the complexity of our relationships with each other and the environment, and speak to the importance of connectedness and inclusion.

INTERIORS AND EXTERIORS - GILLIAN LANDER

17 June to 3 July

A musicologist as well as painter, Gillian Lander’s works often have an underlying contemplative or religious reference, as is particularly the case with her six responsories to ‘The Dark Night of the Soul’, an eight-stanza poem by Carmelite Spanish monk, St John of the Cross [1542 – 1591]. She accompanies these with four oils on plywood that address global warming with references to friend Alys Thorpe’s poem ‘Blake’s Law’, and a couple of additional abstract compositions.
