HORIZONS – LAND • SEA • SPACE
Works by Carol Lawson, Nichola Campbell & Chris McEwan
Including Chris McEwan’s amazing robot and space toy collection
CAROL LAWSON – Carol’s series of pastel paintings was inspired by the ever-changing patterns and colours of the South Downs. The landscapes transformed by the passing seasons and the weather.
NICHOLA CAMPBELL – Nichola’s new work is inspired by the sea, the rock pools and creatures of the seashore. Working experimentally with inks on wood blocks to capture the textures and brilliant colours of the undersea world.
CHRIS McEWAN – Chris’s work is inspired by his love of machines and mechanical devices and his own collection of space toys. Most people assume they know about robots, having relegated them to the status of children’s toys. However, faced with a collection of several hundred such toys, they experience a child-like sense of wonder at their originality and design.
