Circle, Bath Hospital, Foxcote Ave, Peasedown St John, Bath BA2 8SQ
Art at the Heart of the RUH is pleased to present a new exhibition at the Circle, Bath Hospital, of work by artists Ione Parkin and Terri Hogan.
IONE PARKIN RWA
Ione Parkin is a painter and printmaker based in Bath. She exhibits nationally and internationally and her work is in numerous private and corporate collections. She is an elected member of the Royal West of England Academy (RWA). Ione is currently involved in a project with astronomers from the University of Leicester and the Institute of Astronomy, Cambridge and will be exhibiting her work at the Cambridge Science Festival in March 2017.
“My work celebrates the beauty of the raw elements of nature – contemplations on primal energy, chemical fusion, the birth and death of star systems. I seek inspiration from varied sources – from visions of the expanding universe to satellite macro-imagery of Earth’s surface, making paintings which enable a synthesis to evolve from this diversity.” Ione Parkin
Featured Images: "Volatile Energy" and "Vapour", both Oil on Canvas
In the interest of continuity of theme, several paintings are worked on at once, each complementing and adding to the depth of the others whilst retaining their individuality, often initial drawing is revealed as the processes used frequently involves sanding down or washing back, leaving multi layers of pigment and process.
Terri’s future work will include further investigation of marks left on the land by early man. Major influences in the works are painters such as Tapies, Peter Lanyon, Wilhelmina Barns-Graham and Sandra Blow.
Featured Images: "Mullion - Between the Rocks" and "Trevescan Cliff Towards Lands End", both mixed media on canvas.
