Somerset coastline inspires exhibition
PUBLISHED: 16:28 20 July 2011
BRISTOL artist Ruth Ander will explore Somerset's coastal light in a new exhibition at the Colston Hall in September.
Inspired by the light and drama of the North Somerset coastline, from Clevedon to Brean Down, Ruth creates unique and evocative prints on fine tissue and Japanese paper.
By applying very thin layers of ink, her work emulates the delicate, subtle play of light on the water and has the finished texture and translucency of an old Italian fresco or a Japanese woodblock print.
A selection of her ethereal one-off prints will be exhibited throughout September in the Bristol Colston Hall’s gallery The Glass Room.
