ARTIST: Lucy redknap

7 September – 30 October

aN EXHIBITION EXPLORING pORTSMOUTH, THE SURROUNDING AREAS AND THE SEA

Lucy studied fine art at Chichester university after completing a diploma and pre-degree at Fareham college.

‘During my time at university I entered the Chichester open art exhibition and won an award in the young artist category for an impressionist piece called “plane windows”.

My work is inspired by by places I visit, this current exhibit is concentrating on my home town of Portsmouth and Gosport.  My work has been inspired by a number of artist including Micheal Craig Martin who’s objects are not of scale to each other. I use simple lines, block colours and the buildings are not to scale to give an impression of a place.

Since university I have also been working in health and social care and now I am an occupational therapist assistant and a mum, art is a therapy and a great way to relax. I hope others enjoy my work as much as I do to create them’.
