THREE of Oxfordshire’s most exciting artists will display the fruits of their labours at the Sarah
THREE of Oxfordshire’s most exciting artists will display the fruits of their labours at the Sarah Wiseman Gallery next month.
Bee Bartlett, Emmie van Biervliet and Richard Fox will show their work in A Visual Feast for Artweeks 2015 at the Oxford venue from May 9 to 30.
“Artweeks is a celebration of visual art right across the county, and it’s exciting to think of all this creative talent, right on our doorstep,” says gallery director Sarah Wiseman.
“These three artists â?? Â Bee Bartlett, Emmie van Biervliet and Richard Fox â?? are people with whom we work year-round at this gallery, so this is an ideal time to focus on their work, and celebrate these artists living and working in Oxfordshire.”
Bee is influenced by her travels and her home town Oxford. At the end of 2014, she explored southern France and Catalonia in northern Spain.
Her style typically uses experimental marks and textures, incorporating materials such as silver leaf and collage.
Richard works in bronze, stone and native British hardwoods, with sycamore being a favourite. His wood sculptures often take coiled or ribbon-like forms, and can be rotated, allowing the viewer to choose the perspective from which to view it.
Emmie is best known for her paintings and is also inspired by her extensive travels.
Many of her paintings of buildings in Cuba were an exploration of the life of a building, peering into tiny windows through which tiny rooms, plants and occupants could be glimpsed.
