Paintings by Anna Perlin and Ceramics by Sarah Jenkins
Anna Perlin is an established artist and print maker, creating her distinctive work from her Hertfordshire studio.
Growing up in the heart of rural Oxfordshire, the changing colours and seasons of the British landscape and the people and places Anna visits have been a long standing inspiration.
Texture is an important part of her work, and influenced by her textile background and mumís love of quilt making, Anna frequently uses material as well as paper collage, which alongside other mixed media creates exciting colour and textural effects. The quiet areas of Annaís paintings are just as important as the vibrant subjects of her work, allowing you to focus on her chosen window on the world, whether itís a woodland, garden or street.
Following on from reaching the semi-finals of Sky Arts Landscape Artist of the Year 2016, Anna won Artists & Illustrators Artist of the Year 2017.
Sarah Jenkins has been making ceramics for over thirty years. She is based in a north Essex village and her direct connection to the landscape is very important to her work.
ĎI want the work itself to be the most eloquent of artistsí statements. I find I am not good at pinning down what I do with words. I feel I am on a search, my quarry is elusive, intuition is more helpful in this territory of analysisí
Sarahís ceramics are always hand built and fired several times. Currently, she likes to use simple slips and oxides with scant use of glaze.
