EAST LODGE OCTOBER EXHIBITION
East Lodge Exhibition “Free Form” featuring
Hannah Kempe, Paulina Kalwarska, Beverley Riddle and Denise Fuell.Private View to be held on Saturday 7th October from 2 to 4pm

HANNAH KEMPE

Hannah is a South African artist, based in Rugby. She is interested in worlds where imagination intertwine with symbolism, creating vibrant universes.  Hannah is guided by ritual, trance & automatic drawing, inspired by colours, textures, marks & forms around her.

Hannah graduated from university with a BA Fine Arts in 2018, and since moving to England in 2021, has continued creating visual curiosities, exhibiting & taking commissions.

PAULINA KALWARSKA

Paulina, a member of the Holyhead Studios, is a Polish contemporary artist based in Warwickshire. Paulina’s art practice is experimental in nature. Paulina is interested in encountering new materials, which allows for a playful and exploratory approach. Her most recent work consists of drawing, painting, printmaking and sculpture, through which she examines the endless relationships between colour, shape, form, texture and space.

Paulina’s abstract pieces often play with the viewers expectations. We are used to lines moving in such ways which create familiar shapes. A childhood memory arises, that of endlessly filling in pages of colouring books, according to the numbered areas of each image.

Although the shapes Paulina creates are not instantly recognizable, following the pathway of the lines helps one identify a sense of completeness and familiarity in each ‘’loop’’. Purposefully overlapping these shapes, Paulina creates a puzzle-like image, breaking up the anticipated forms by colouring in fragmented bits which manifest new shapes, ones which seem incomplete or disrupted as their edges don’t follow the original flow of the lines.

BEVERLEY RIDDLE
Beverley is a Stratford based artist who started studying Art when her children became teenagers. After completing a Foundation Course in Art and Design at Birmingham Institute of Art, Beverley decided to embark on a BA (Hons) course at Solihull college under the UCE. She graduated in 2010.Since then, Beverley has been painting and exhibiting locally, as a Solo Artist, as part of a group and as a member of local Art Societies. She was painting at the Artists Workhouse in Studley, where she shared a studio with a friend and fellow artist. This however has now closed, and she paints in her small studio at home.
As an artist, Beverley gets her inspiration from nature, colour, and texture. She uses various textural and painting techniques to create exciting and interesting images and a range of surfaces. Beverley is primarily inspired by texture and the decaying and eroding of nature and buildings over the passing of time. Her main medium is acrylic paint, but also uses inks and mixed media. In the past, Beverley has worked in series, old doors, trees, and buildings. During the lockdown period Beverley painted a series of tulip paintings inspired by some flowers she was given after the loss of her mum.
DENISE FUELL

In Denise’s paintings she is seeking to interpret nature, landscape and habitat in a semi abstract, and impressionist form with an architectural quality.

Colour plays a major part in Denise’s work, using a broad and varied range of materials including watercolour, acrylic paint, and collage.

ANYA SIMMONS TO BE ARTIST IN RESIDENCE AT
LSA ART ROOM FOR THE MONTH OF OCTOBER 2023

Anya is a professional artist living in Kineton, Warwickshire and exhibits in various galleries throughout the UK, attending regular events and exhibitions throughout the year.

Anya has always had a passion for art; the idea of being able to express what you think and feel about things and create your own interpretation of the subject matter – with distinct results – gives her great enjoyment.

Anya’s more recent works are profoundly influenced by beautiful coastal landscapes, quirky harbours and the ever-changing countryside of Great Britain.  Anya enjoys working with various mediums creating an exciting blend of textures, shapes and vibrant colours; whilst continually experimenting with the effects that can be created using gesso, acrylic and acrylic inks. Anya loves the depth of colour, movement and versatility that can be achieved using these elements, working independently, but also in such a way that they complement each other.

Anya gets enormous pleasure from examining the form, colours, light and textures within our diverse landscape and she is continually striving to capture this. Within Anya’s works she strives to give her audience the romance or memory of a scene which is recognised as real, but does not always have a physical location.

EAST LODGE GALLERY COFFEE MORNING

The Coffee morning organised by Mary Thomas at the East Lodge Gallery last Tuesday 19th September was well attended.
