For Toni Cogdell, poetry […]

Work in progress – Rosemary Lewis

I am particularly enjoying seeing the new still life paintings by Rosemary Lewis and also love seeing the photographs of her work in progress. Rosemary Lewis has shown with us for many years. You may remember the small objects she painted (which sold so well) – groups of clear plastic lighters, marbles and crayon’s, jar’s […]

Each loaded brush mark appears to be caught by fluorescent traces of light, creating a sensory overload. Ominous figures can be found lurking in the […]
