Ruth’s work in oils and on canvas are most often a response to the East Suffolk landscape, and are either energetic and textured, or worked into smooth flowing abstract forms.

Her watercolours arise from similar inspiration and are worked in translucent layers of pure watercolour on hand made paper.

With over 30 pieces in the show at Burnham Grapevine Contemporary Arts, there are a range of unusual pieces, coming out of different landscapes such as North Wales, and sometimes, a result of her love of the creatures of the Suffolk landscape.

Jazz Green: Cley 16 Contemporary Art exhibition

Jazz Green is currently exhibiting new work in Cley 16: In Norfolk Now, an annual exhibition of contemporary art in the beautiful setting of St Margaret’s church in Cley-next-the-Sea in north Norfolk. Additional artworks selected for Cley 16 are located at Cley Windmill Shop, Crabpot Bookshop and the Norfolk Wildlife Trust Visitor Centre. There is also a programme of events, including creative workshops, musical concerts, curator talks and seminars.

Cley 16: In Norfolk Now is open daily 10am to 5.30pm, 7 July – 7 August 2016.

Cley 16 is organised by The North Norfolk exhibition Project (NNEP). The NNEP was established in 2000 to develop opportunities for innovative and contemporary art in North Norfolk. The NNEP is now widely regarded for its summer exhibitions of contemporary art, originally at Salthouse from 2001-2011, moving to Cley in 2012. Each year a different curator is chosen to select artists from an advertised ‘Open Call’. The shortlisted artists meet the curator at the Church in the new year to discuss plans and ideas for the exhibition. In 2016 Hugh Pilkington, artist, curator and award-winning architect, selected seventy three artists from two hundred artist applications, both a record number of applicants and shortlisted artists for this renowned regional exhibition.

cley16-art-exhibition-church-2016

From the Cley 16: In Norfolk Now curator, Hugh Pilkington:
The works demonstrate a wide range of practice from pure abstraction to representation: the abstracted landscape to the photographic; the sculptural – small works, maquettes for larger works, and floor-based pieces; and a group of artists working with fabric and stitch in the chancel of the church. There are installations and interventions, and site-specific work on the beach and around the church. We are pleased to include that remarkable organisation, Barrington Farm, whose members are showing work in the church and the Norfolk Wildlife Trust Visitors Centre. For the first time the Fine Art MA course at the University of the Arts in Norwich are participating as a group and the students have been using the exhibition as a live art project.

Fundraising continues with the opportunity to sponsor a large painting donated to the hospital and enter a raffle where you can win an original mini artwork which Alfie will paint for you. To be in with a chance, please make a contribution here – http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/AlfieCarpenterPainting

Alfie Carpenter, Fenland

Of his work at Addenbrookes, Alfie says he “wanted to capture the expansive patchwork of the flat fenlands around Cambridgeshire. I love the inescapable horizon which forces you to gaze into the far out distance; asking you to look forward and ponder that which lays ahead. For me, I thought of the NHS, the state of our planet and our society’s wellbeing in these uncertain times.

In recent years, evidence has emerged which shows that displaying artwork in hospital spaces is successfully encouraging patient and staff wellbeing. A study at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital found that 75% of patients found the presence of art in the hospital reduced stress levels. Remarkably, evidence also suggested that patients exposed to visual art and live music during the post-operative period required less analgesia per day than patients recovering in the absence of visual art and live music. These patients also stayed one day less in hospital.

As an artist with a background in botany and zoology, Ruth McCabe has exhibited with the Royal Watercolour Society at Bankside Gallery, London, and in the Sunday Times Contemporary Watercolour Competition at the Mall Galleries, London.

I love the natural world in all its shapes, forms and climates, whether it is classically beautiful, or scarred by industry. The nature of living organisms fills me with awe. As an undergraduate I studied Botany and Zoology, which taught me to look very carefully. It also deepened my appreciation of the immense complexity of form and function in living things. I enjoy the translucency of watercolour and its flow over the surface, and the rich texture and depth of colour of oils.

The collection presented for Addenbrookes offers Ruth’s responses to two contrasting landscapes: the quiet undramatic agricultural landscape of east and coastal Suffolk and, from her 2015 residency in Snowdonia, the massive powerful forms of that mountainous region and its slate quarries.

Ruth is also one of the organisers of Inspired by Becker, an exhibition that will take place at St Peter’s Church in Wenhaston, Suffolk  from 5th to 7th August 2016, and will tell the story behind this initiative, now in its fourth year of presenting contemporary artwork by artists inspired by the work of Harry Becker who lived in Wenhaston early last century.
