There’s plenty going on at Skylark Galleries this month.
Nicolette Carter is the current featured artist (until 13 October) in Skylark 1. “My influences include medieval art, Mughal painting and decorative arts from many cultures,” she says. “Although I enjoy using colour and pattern as surface decoration, there are always poetic, narrative and spiritual elements in my work. This lends a meditative element to the paintings, as the viewer is free to interpret and explore the images as they wish, in the same way that reading a poem may evoke different responses from different people.”
In Skylark 2, Angelique Hartigan is on show until 13 October. She is influenced by movement, timelessness, change, the moments just before or just after – as someone passes from light into shadow, a changing skyline, the changing seasons. Her paintings have a sense of the celebratory and she enjoys looking for the iconic in a locality to capture.
There will be more news soon about Skylark artists appearing at the Affordable Art Fair, Battersea, from 24 to 27 October.
