Last week we took our Art Foundation and BTEC students to visit the Harley Gallery Open Studios and Professional Practice Day which is in the beautiful Welbeck Estate, Worksop.
It's a fantastic opportunity to see a vast array of creative practitioners and businesses, it was an inspiration to us all.Kyra Cane.
As soon as you walked in there was a sense of calm and stillness.
I just love looking in artists' studios, each space is unique and this one was simply beautiful.
Cane's mark- making is sublime, and I wasn't surprised to see that she also produces exquisite drawings (which can be seen on her website).
This quote, taken from one of her post cards states:
'References are made to the wild open spaces where she loves to draw;the edge of the land has a particular fascination for her, that p,ace where earth meets vast open seas, huge expansive skies, forms that have a rhythm but never repeat.'
I also found her equipment and tools to be fascinating...
I had serious brush- envy!
Thank you Kyra for making us all feel most welcome, and for letting me snoop around your beautiful studio!
