On and Off the Wall

On and Off the Wall

Paintings by Diana Booth, sculpture by Ani Buckland, mosaics by Corinna Barrell and printmaking by Caroline Barker.

Opening view: Tuesday 14 June, 12 - 5 pm.

Diana Booth’s paintings are inspired by her travels to New Zealand and Alaska and, a little closer to home, the Isles of Scilly, the south Devon coastline and flowers from her garden.

"Appreciation of what is on our doorstep became even greater with lock-down. I delight in the flexibility, malleability and rich colour of oils. I enjoy using a palette knife and experiment with various ways of applying the paint to achieve the desired effect: knives, brushes, rags and fingers all come into play!"

Printmaker Caroline Barker works in with both intaglio and relief techniques and, more recently, with monoprints. Linocuts are a particular favourite with design, carving and layering of colours, often illustrating aspects of the local landscape with its animals and plantlife. Caroline also shows delightful small, handmade books with calligraphy and linocut illustrations.

Corinna Barrell loves to put a modern twist on the ancient art form of the mosaic. Birds and nature that surround her rural Devon home feature in her work, recently evolving into 3D sculptures. She uses recycled china in a technique called pique assiette (thief of plates), employing pattern and texture to suggest feathers and fur, her lifelike representations of native birds and animals taking life’s leftovers on a new journey.

Specialising in figurative sculpture from life models, both human and animal, Ani Buckland’s most recent works aim for an authentic definition of form through complex anatomical study. Her studies in psychology and art led her to train and work as an art therapist in NHS Mental Health Services.
