Richard Pinches exhibits examples of his photography over the  40  years as a commercial and a  fine art photographer having recently completed a Masters fine art photography degree.. Richard’s masters project, ‘Barbs, Buried and Burnt’ work is all based on barbed wire as a metaphor for conflict, with various methods of destruction to add further layers of interest. This evolved from being merely a war metaphor to aso reflect on his late father, a cattle farmer from Henley-on-Thames, who also served in the second world war.

Artist Ki Bliss: Ki’s paintings are inspired by nature. They are an expression of emotions, experiences, thoughts, and dreams. Using colour, light and texture, she invites us to see a world expressed through the power of abstraction rather than words. She is inspired by nature and music, focusing on rhythms and patterns that repeat in her art. Her artworks are mainly acrylics on canvas, abstract, fresh and bold,created by using unconventional tools and methods. She is an intuitive,emotional artist that likes to experience new techniques with thick textures,overlayed canvas treatments, energetic brushes, splashes and drips. She simply enjoys the freedom of the creative process itself.

She strives to make art that moves and inspires whilst allowing the viewer to form a personal connection with the work.

Connected - Artists – Cat Croxford, Liz Harvey, Wendy Hodges and Sue Mundy. Art connects us. This exhibition of four artists, celebrates the connections that art makes, between us as artists, between us as educators and with the world around us. This year, more than ever, we have learnt to value our connections with friends and family, with our communities, with strangers and with our environment. The four of us as artists respond to the world around us, using a variety of media and techniques and approaches, including painting, ceramics and etching.  This exhibition celebrates our connections and our differing approaches and we hope will connect with those who visit. We welcome all to the show where you can see our work, see us working and see the processes involved in how we make our art.
