Karen Stamper - Acrylic Collage Paintings
9.30am - 5.00pm Monday to Saturday
The John Russell Gallery, 46 Wherry Lane, Ipswich, IP4 1LG



Cambridge based Karen Stamper is a very busy exciting and active collage artist having exhibited throughout the U.K. since her last show here. So we are very privileged to have her returning to the John Russell Gallery, with a new collection, this time with a theme of urban shoreline.

Increasingly, there is a strong abstract element, but there remains recognisable parts that draw the viewer in: the hook of a crane, the bow of a boat, the profile of a mast, all of which plays on the viewer's imagination.

Her work has the overall sense of a painting, but as you look closely you will see that it is skilfully built up using layers of found papers, tissue and acrylic paint. Hers is an intuitive, direct approach that provides freedom to interpret her sketches in a bold and original way, capturing the memory of a place and the sense of human presence, echoing the passing of time.

"I see the beauty in simple scraps, ripped edges, accidental marks and worn surfaces. By simplifying and flattening space with paper shapes, I can recompose, conceal and reveal, deliberately avoiding representational clarity. The interaction of positive and negative shapes, vibrant colours, layers of tissue and found papers all give a sense of unity."

Her paintings capture the vibrancy and colour of boats on a sunny day, the chaotic mix of bright paint, the working machinery around the harbour's edge, and the wear and tear and the individuality of the fishing boats. You can almost hear the lapping of the water and the pinging of the halyards on masts. We once again welcome Karen with her journey in paint and collage, don£t miss the boat with this exciting vibrant and imaginative artist.

Nature's Footprint
Quay Gallery, Snape Maltings, Snape, IP17 1SP



Suffolks coast, farms, forests and rivers inspire artists Gill Bedson, Tricia Newell and John Garrett. All members of Sudbourne Printmakers, they use techniques including collagraph, drypoint, etching, lino and woodcuts to create original prints that express their inspiration.

Many of Gill's prints are of the animals on the small farm that is her home. She knows each and every one of them and captures their characters in her art. Other subjects spring from the coast and the fishing along it.

Tricia has illustrated many books and other publications before returning to print making. She has an eye for accurate detail, whilst creating prints that are as pleasing as they are varied. She also enjoys pyrographing wooden items which have been turned by John.

John's love of traditional sailing craft and river scenes with reeds and bulrushes is expressed in several media. Many of his prints are of subjects close to Snape.

See Snape Maltings for venue information.

Brenda Unwin - Recent Oil Paintings
9.30am - 5.00pm Monday to Saturday
The John Russell Gallery, 4-6 Wherry Lane, Ipswich, IP4 1LG



This will be the second solo exhibition at the gallery of Norwich based artist Brenda Unwin, who we warmly welcome back. She has shown work in private galleries and open exhibitions in and around East Anglia for many years. The artists physical experience of walking in various landscapes and weather conditions is the staring point for Brenda's abstract paintings.
They demonstrate three things; an acute concern for colour relationships, qualities of light and a sense of place. Abstraction allows her to suggest rather than depict. The application of the paint; active or still, transparent or saturated can be equivalents to the reality of noticing shifting light, rock formations, or the fragility of snow. Her oil paintings have an extraordinary luminosity and depth of colour, achieved through a gradual build up of layers and glazes. The colours are precise and deliberate; she can spend a considerable amount of time mixing a particular colour adjusting its saturation, tone, opacity and transparency in relationship to its neighbour's. Colours have to earn their keep! This work is a continuation of ideas developed during a hyttetur, which is Norwegian for cabin tour, but it means more than just the literal translation. Rather it describes a particular type of journey, hiking from one cabin to another, collecting water from streams, heating the cabin, and being self-sufficient far away from civilization. It was profound and memorable, for Brenda the paintings have increased her understanding of that landscape. Her paintings are visual equivalents; they are not snapshots but an accumulation of glimpses, perceptions, understanding and experience. Brenda studied Fine Art at De Montfort University, Leicester and took an M.A. at Norwich University of the Arts. Brenda has recently lost her mother and would like this exhibition to be dedicated to her memory.
Come to view her distinctive abstracted imagination through oil painting that has been created through her walking journey.
