Art talk: Sat 20th May (12pm - 1pm)
Deirdre and Martin will present and discuss their exhibition (free admission)
The exhibition is a chance to see Deirdre and Martin Elphick’s artwork from the last two years, including landscape paintings and sculpture inspired by their trip to the Aegean island of Naxos.
Having originally studied Fine Art at Winchester School of Art in the late 1970s Deirdre has returned to painting and drawing following a career as a BBC Producer/Director. Deirdre’s paintings and drawings are inspired by nature, be it landscape, still life or the human form. She has a particular interest in colour and mark making.
Martin has been making things since a very early age; but he has concentrated on sculptures now for several years. His work is often abstract, but he returns to human forms and natural textures and to practice in figurative skills. The apparent variety in his work springs from his varied interests and experiences, which naturally lead to different technical solutions and materials. Some themes, a common style, and some favourite materials are discernible nonetheless.
