Purl


It's such a proud feeling when a past student goes out there into the big wide world and follows their dreams.
Doubly proud actually, as this involves two past students.

Doubly proud indeed, as the gallery has been set up and run by another very talented past student!
It was the private view on Friday and it was very well attended.
It was also a great experience for the Art Foundation students seeing that, with hard work and determination, there are opportunities to work in the creative world.
Gwennaelle's collage work is beautifully composed, with a sensitive and refreshing response to the past and a flash of humour and playfulness.
' I am drawn to these crumpled, torn images for many reasons, their low- tech print quality, faded colour palette and the distinctive, awkward models posed on the covers.'
G. Cook

Well done Gwennaelle!
Look at those shoes!
Her paintings are contemporary, yet not intimidating, and share the exuberant and joyful quality of her collages.
I can't recommend this exhibition highly enough, Gwennaelle already has a line up of exhibitions booked and is an artist with a glowing future, (with an added dash of light magenta of course!)
