Based in Cumbria, Alison Critchlow's work is about time, erosion, speed and motion. Starting outside, the landscape and especially the sea forms the basis for exploring painterly expression.
She strives for the balance between representation and abstraction, between a moment caught and then reinvented in paint.
Dorothy Ramsay is a painter/printmaker. The drawings are ether interpreted in a romantic realism or taken into an abstraction. Her subject is landscape using the drawings done outside. The work is lively and often colourful. The etchings and wood cuts allow her to be playful and produce art work which can be sold at a reasonable price.
