Ben Wardle – 9th July to 15th July
I am lucky enough to spend my working days on horseback exploring some of the most beautiful countryside East Anglia has to offer. My paintings are of what I see in these landscapes, but more importantly how I feel when I am in them. Being in wild spaces has a tremendous effect on our mental health and this psychological /environmental link gives me a great source of creative inspiration.
I am inspired by the research of Environmental Philosopher Glenn Albrecht, ‘Deep’ Ecology, and the writings of Roger Deakin, Robert Macfarlane and all the other creatives.

Ruth Bunnewell – 27th August to 2nd September
Memories and emotions that become attached to places lead me to the landscapes that I choose to paint. Atmosphere and ‘stories’ connected to the landscapes are as important as the aesthetics. I view landscapes almost as backdrops to the events that may happen within. My aim is to capture the essence of a place, reducing the ‘unnecessary’ detail in favour of capturing the feel and fundamental quiddity of each landscape. I am drawn to trees within landscapes; in particular the duality between their natural beauty and their darker side, as to be found in many fairy tales…this contrast continues to fascinate me. I find woodlands and forests simultaneously beautiful and uncanny in equal measures, and I aim to portray in my work these two contrasting qualities.
