The Gallery at Parndon Mill
East of England,
This exhibition, Hinterland, combines letter carving in stone by Simon Langsdale with drawings and paintings by Jane Bottery inspired by walks along the Essex coast.
‘The hardest thing of all to see is what is really there’.
Simon has had a lifelong interest in the arts and crafts including calligraphy and also history. He set up his own workshop and became a fellow of Digswell Arts Trust. He then moved to Parndon Mill, where he is currently based.
Jane works with a variety of media to create minimal, abstract paintings. Which are influenced by the natural world and local landscapes. Works have been pared back and reduced to a simple poetic statement. Interested in issues around the environment and mental well-being, her delicate paintings are intended to give a feeling of respite and calm. Her studio is at Digswell Arts Trust in Hertfordshire.
A guiding theme for Hinterland is the book by J A Baker set on the flat marshes of the Essex coast which he described in such a painterly and evocative way.
The artists’ mutual wish is to make meditative pieces which resonate with the viewer.
