POSTPONED Three Studios

Glynnis Abraham, Lizzie Sturm, Alison Wisenfeld

15 to 19 April 2020
  • Peggy Jay Gallery

Three Studios was formed on a sunny day in 2019 whilst eating an al fresco lunch surrounded by a blaze of colour, scents and home grown vegetables. 

Each of the artist’s in the group has exhibited individually but this is the group’s first show together. The exhibition invites the viewer to experience different elements of the senses through 2D and 3D forms exhibited, with an emphasis on the natural state. The show brings together a range of techniques including paper making, reverse painting, illustrative work and uses various medium including oil, acrylic, watercolour, inks, pulp and charcoal. 


Alison uses graphite, watercolour and natural linen paper in her interpretative art work. Her illustrations capture the essence of the written word, recently taking inspiration from the humour found in our language.          

Glynnis adopts many different approaches to create light in her works. Her method includes Verre eglomise’, an old form of painting on glass in reverse. She has successfully adapted this to acrylic sheeting. 

Lizzie uses plant and vegetable fibre, many of which she grows, as a medium for both 2D and 3D work. Each fibre has its own characteristic, giving rise to forms and textures that emerge.
