‘Elixir’ is a first exhibition put together by Yeovil Creatives, an informal networking group for creatives in and around Yeovil, meeting monthly at Eastville Project Space, Yeovil since early this year. The exhibition gives us an opportunity to showcase our work and shares our creative ideas with the visitors. It includes works from more than 10 artists working with different media, including photography, painting, design, drawing, textile, installation, writing and mixed media.
Growing and nurturing living willow sculptures has been the inspiration for my paintings and drawings. I have explored willow as material, as well as subject, and made my own charcoal to use in my work. I also experiment using natural materials from my garden. This creative dialogue is the ‘elixir’ that feeds my growth as an artist.
I hope to have 5 pieces of work in the exhibition.
