MEET THE ARTIST: Faye Bridgwater, (by Oliver Norris)
Inspired by the Sussex landscape and coastline, Faye’s paintings capture those fleeting moments of light, movement and feelings. Faye mark makes by using objects found during beach-combing adventures, from fisherman’s knots and driftwood to feathers and bottle tops. These tactile objects are used as tools, to make brushes or pens to print and scratch the paintings. Together with the layering of paint and ink, charcoal and pencil the technique produces contemporary sea and landscape. The paintings are timeless and conjure distant memories.
