Landscape and still life paintings by Rosemary Vanns with textured stoneware ceramics by Clare Conrad

Rosemary Vanns feels she is instinctively a printmaker, but painting has recently become an inspirational and important part of her work. Mark making and colour continue to predominate in both disciplines and her work has been described as a mixture of still life and landscape pieces that have a beautiful abstract fluidity and movement with a warm, earthy palette.

ĎÖI feel my most recent work reflects a major shift which has occurred because I am compelled to take a new path, to see familiar things in a different way and to look for the unfamiliar. This manifests itself with the observation of and immersion in the spirit of things: a more internal world where colours, shapes and ideas are inherently intuitive..í

Rosemary works from her studio overlooking the dramatic landscape of the Derbyshire Peak District.

Clare Conrad is a potter, who, for many years has experimented with methods of colour application to the surface of her pots, having been entranced by the peeling paint and sun-faded natural colours in Southern Europe.

In recent years, living near the coast has added a contrasting strand to her work - stark, white chalk, deep green/blue sea, erosion and the natural colours and markings of flints. She uses vitreous slips, which she mixes and intermixes from raw materials with primary pigments; in this way she achieves an infinite palette of subtle colours, which she applies to the exterior surface in layers, whilst the pot is still damp. The expressive, apparent randomness of the design belies the laborious and careful method necessary to achieve it.
