Exhibition open: 11.10.14 – 26.10.14

Bath Spa University and the Trevor Osborne Charitable Trust (founded by local property developer Trevor Osborne) joined forces again this year to offer 5 students an artist’s residency in Porthleven, Cornwall, followed by an exhibition at the O3 Gallery.

This exhibition predominantly showcases the medium of printmaking, with an emphasis on the process of lino-cutting, via the work of Susan Wheeler and Colin Moore. Both artists exemplify how this traditional printing method (deriving from the ancient technique of woodcutting) can produce such fresh, contemporary imagery. Wheeler and Moore’s work is accompanied by that of Anna Dillon, whose painting is influenced by 20th century British landscape painting, characterised by the work of Paul and John Nash, John Piper and Peter Lanyon...
