NEW WORK IN PROGRESS!

Artists Studio Update

Really enjoying working on some more expressive paintings in my studio at the moment. Will be interesting to see how they develop.


Hopefully I don't lose that really loose open feel they have at the moment. Almost scared to touch them...

NORTH NOFOLK EXHIBITIONS PROJECT

Wighton 23 Cycle - 6th July to 6th August

Getting back to my Fine Art roots this year I am taking part in the NNEP project at Wighton Church.


In collaboration with Ros Copping and inspired by the light in the church we have created an installation, 

'Momentary Fragments of Light', made from hand-made discs of recycled paper. 


'Slowly the light cast by the windows fades in and out on the ancient plaster walls of All Saints Church, Wighton.

Stained glass throws patches of jewelled colour onto the walls, moving slower than the eye can see tracing the

suns journey across the day.


Shapes fade in and out of focus, the outside landscape reflected inside. Each rotation of the earth bringing changes

to the patterns on the church walls. A constant cycle, everyday new, everyday different.'

The North Norfolk Exhibition Project (NNEP) promotes the profile of contemporary visual arts in north Norfolk by means of an annual open contemporary art exhibition. With associated workshops and events, it encourages and extends accessibility and inclusion in the enjoyment and process of contemporary art for all sections of the public.

Liz James

Liz James works in a free, expressive style to capture the atmosphere of a place and time rather than geographical detail. Primarily using watercolour and acrylic she often incorporates other materials and mediums using charcoal, pastel, pencil, and sand to enhance her paintings.
The stunning Norfolk landscape is the main inspiration for her artistic practice, in particular the beautiful coast around Cromer where she lives and the wide-open skies. She is fascinated by the way the weather and changing seasons mark the passage of time and affect the mood of the sea, sky, and landscape.

Marsh before the Beach Midsummer Ros Copping.JPG

Ros Copping

Ros Copping’s work experiments in capturing memorable episodes of the interplay between people, creatures and place, using carved lino that imitates expressive brush work. Sometimes using reduction printing, mono printing and hand colouring and usually printed by hand to capture spontaneous marks and textures. Normally prints then lead onto larger paintings.
By being outside Ros records what is seen on the North Norfolk Coast and uses structured compositions to create energy with limited brush marks including only necessary parts of the story. Often there are memorable moments along-side intended tension. Quality of line is used to describe and set a scene for a suggested narrative. The titles give a context of time and place if needed.

JOINT EXHIBITION AT THE NEW CROMER ARTSPACE

LOOKING NORTH Liz James and Ros Copping

Cromer Artspace on the Prom is a project to create an artspace in an ‘art deco’ building on the west promenade in Cromer. This is a real opportunity to bring an unused heritage building into community use, creating a unique destination for North Norfolk. This is an iconic building with a superb location which will attract a high calibre of national and international artists, of interest throughout the region.


The building has been empty since the tidal surge at the end of 2013 so needs some love and attention to enable us to use it all year round, and to improve the access which currently involves a set of steep steps. While the plans for the major works are developed, put through the planning process, and the necessary funds for the work raised we have opened the gallery in it’s rustic state. It’s still an amazing space in an amazing location.

Please consider supporting the project by donating via our just giving campaign.

To find Artspace on the Prom, on the promenade in Cromer walk to the far west end (that’s left at the bottom of any slope or steps).  The nearest car park is the Runton Road carpark.  Disabled parking is at the bottom of the Melbourne slope.

About Norfolk Wildlife Trust

Exploring the world of Digital Media 

Something completely different for me… my first venture into the digital world of NFT’s.

Sunday Sunrise is a fusion of watercolour painting and source photograph digitally altered to enhance the colours.

I was interested to see how a more traditional artwork form would combine with digital media to create a new unique image. Very surprised to see how close my painting was to the photograph which was completely unintentional.

What is an NFT?

NFT stands for Non-Fungible tokens, these are a form of unique digital asset that exist on the

blockchain. Anything can be minted into an NFT – artwork, digital films, games.
