Our next Artbar guest is the artist Sandra Porter RWA who will talk about her prints, paintings and her current exhibition at the Museum in the Park, Stroud.
“Sandra Porter studied Fine Art at Stourbridge College of Art, achieved an MA in Fine Art Painting from Chelsea School of Art in 1981 and studied Printmaking with Dorothea Wight at Morley College in the 1990s.
She is a contemporary abstract artist interested in the symbiotic relationship between painting, drawing and printmaking. Her work currently explores a fascination with grids, stripes and recurrent schemes which often find their beginnings in architecture, usually grand as in St Basil’s Cathedral in Moscow or Siena Cathedral in Italy. Recently, humble corrugated iron bothans on the Isle of Skye have caught her eye, appearing like drawings in the landscape and inspiring the new works which are shown in this exhibition. This is Sandra Porter’s first solo museum show and will include large-scale carborundum prints, drawings and paintings.” The exhibition is supported by Arts Council England & The Iona Foundation, Amsterdam.
