An exhibition will feature at Ludlow’s Silk Top Hat Gallery during the summer holidays.
Tamsin Bridge’s delicately coloured watercolours depict her imaginative subjects entwined in sinuous tracery and occasionally overlaid with gold leaf.
She says: “I place a lot of importance on fine detail and colour in my work. Essentially, I am illustrating my responses to the stories of everyday. The stories are drawn together from dreams, deep reactions to perhaps simple every day events and other people, in a way that I don’t fully understand myself.
“By painting I begin to understand and analyse these responses, to understand the stories. I find this immensely enjoyable. I try to stay true to myself and I think this is why, at times, someone may connect quite deeply with the work. This is fascinating for me and can, on occasion, create another tale.
“Most importantly, I endeavour to create a painting that gives me something of the feeling we occasionally encounter, especially as children: the feelings we may have when just waking from a dream, or, just catch the moon noticing the crows, jostling for a place in a tree, at dusk.”
Details are available at the gallery in Quality Square, Ludlow, or by calling 01584 875363.
