Nicolette Carter

“Back to the Garden”

From 9th to 29th July 2018 

“One Morning” by Nicolette Carter

Nicolette Carter is one of the most long-standing members of Skylark Galleries having been an exhibiting artist with us since 1999.

Nicolette cites her influences as being  Mughal and Medieval Art, particularly Indian miniatures, and her own personal iconography.

She draws her inspiration  from real and imaginary landscapes such as  the countryside of Surrey, Oxfordshire and Berkshire and also from villages and gardens remembered from her childhood.

Nicolette’s style can be described as figurative, narrative, lyrical, combining the elements of layered colour, pattern and rhythm. Perspective tends to be  flattened and the illusion of depth is created by the layering of flat planes.

MEET THE ARTIST: 
You can meet Nicolette at Skylark Galleries 1, Gabriel’s Wharf 56 Upper Ground SE1 9PP on Sunday 29th July, the last day of the show, but if you are keen to buy a piece of Nicolette’s work  you had better visit before then as her work tends to sell very quickly!

“Linocuts & Landscapes” 

From 10th to 29th July 2018 

“Bamboo Stalks in Inchrya Blue” linocut by Sarah Knight

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sarah Knight takes inspiration from textures and light in the natural world. Each piece usually starts as a reflection on a place travelled to. They develop from pencil sketches focused on composition, line and form. Each one trying to capture the essence of a small detail in the world.

The original prints  have been carefully handmade by the artist using the linocut printing technique. Each design is a limited edition. Each print is signed by the artist and is inscribed in pencil with the title and has its own individual number. Because of the method, each is unique and an original piece of art.

The textured oils are a new development, using the hand mixed inks/ paints prepared for the linocuts, Sarah has been creating abstract, windswept landscapes. She works over the paint surface with pencil, linking the pieces with the common thread of colour and line.
