Alice Tennant Gallery Dinas
"My painting is as much about colour and texture as it is about form. The starting point of a picture is just that- a moment when anything is possible. Even if I begin with a specific idea of what I want to achieve, the painting begins to take shape and grow, almost as if it has a life of its own. All I have to do is listen, and watch, carefully, to see where it wants to go, who it’s going to be. Just like children, my paintings take time, attention and care to establish themselves. Some are a pleasure to bring into being, where as others are more wayward and demanding. At the end of the process, I hope I have created something that others will enjoy, as much as I have enjoyed making it." Alice tennant
Sarah Hope Artist - Newport
Sarah is an award winning artist specialising in portraits.
"As a student of Fine Art, I have always had art in the background of my life. Like many women artists my creativity was for some years directed into bringing up a family. Seven years ago and twenty five years after leaving Art College, I rediscovered the pleasure of painting. Getting older and facing up to the fragility of human existence has motivated me to commit to my art work with a dedication I find exhilarating".
"I have become fascinated by portraiture. Portraits can reveal so much about the complexity of a person and their life story. Looking at portraits reminds me that, what bonds us as human beings, is our capacity to empathise with each other". Sarah Hope
A collective of dedicated art and craft makers living and working in and around Newport, Pembrokeshire. Their collective gallery is entirely run by its members and showcases a unique selection of art and craft.
