Current Exhibition: Vanessa Gardiner : 13 - 30 April 2021

Vanessa forms her paintings by continuously drawing and working over the surface emphasising and sometimes altering the composition as she goes. What this leaves us with is paintings filled with traces of its history, much like the landscapes and seascapes that she captures, in which nature tells us of what has been.
