Turn up the Heat!




4 June – 6 July 2019

PREVIEW Sunday 2nd June at 2 – 5

Responding to the season, Turn up the Heat is an exploration of how several artists and makers use colour and how they achieve dramatic effect by their use of materials and technique.

Carry Akroyd’s serigraphs and paintings explore the countryside, observing the subtle changes at the interface between nature and man, ‘and sometimes the images just ends up being about colour!’

Jess Davies is chiefly a printmaker and her work often comprises very simple images that are very evocative of mood and space. RAMP Ceramics are creative partners with husband Roop making the forms and Alice decorating the forms with motifs abstracted from the natural world and building these up in layers of colourful slips. Richard Phethean also uses contrasting clay slip when making his hand thrown and altered sculptural works.

Gordon Monk hand makes sculptural furniture made of green wood and Kitty Hillier works on hardboard and using refined shapes that she has drawn from nature seeks to spark jarring and harmonious relationships in her use of colour, which is then, carved into.

Penny Carter is a glass artist and jeweller whose work is full of light and wearable happiness.

This is the fifth exhibition curated for the Yew Tree Gallery by Miranda Leonard of the Restless Gallery
