Kathy Dutton and Sarah Knight are the featured artists in Skylark Galleries this month. In Skylark 1, Kathy is showing Soul Story, a selection of paintings that explore the imaginary “inner landscapes” of what she calls “the light garden”, and in Skylark 2, Sarah is showing Bembridge Bliss, a painting inspired by holidays to the Isle of Wight.
Kathy says: “It is a garden of light and space where energy and time are transformed. All things are possible here, and everything is allowed: harmony, peace, love and contentment. People and characters from my life are here, the archetypes, beauty, simplicity and perfection.
“I collect images, ideas, fragments of poetry and songs in my sketchbooks; I take a walk in nature or sit in my garden… these are catalysts for my creative process. I transform these into paintings in my studio, bringing my inner world together with the outside world.”
Kathy will be at Skylark 1 on Friday 12 July from 6pm to 7.30pm. Come and meet her and other artists from the galleries over a glass of wine beside the Thames.
Sarah‘s painting is inspired by holidays in the Isle of Wight as a child, she says, “and also the colours, light and storms of Vancouver Island, Canada. To me it speaks of drinking in the beauty of a place, but also of chasing around in the wind and sea air.”
Works by Kathy and Sarah continue at Skylark Galleries until 14 July.
