Christopher Rainham


Christopher’s work has always been inspired by the natural world and more specifically an experience of the natural world. He is inspired by the way flora and fauna is woven into language, the explanations of things, stories and beliefs.

Animals and flowers and birds have their own symbolism, are the characters in myths, some of the players in religious writings, metaphors for things we can’t explain. The birds in his paintings are the motif of his design, the objects of his composition and an element of his pattern.

 

Audrey Hind


Audrey was born in Cheshire and studied at Northwich College of Art, Manchester and Liverpool College of Art.

She has lived in Anglesey since 1962 and her paintings are a response to living on an island in the Irish Sea under the shadow of the Mountains of Snowdonia.

Audrey works mainly on themes of light, colour and forms observed from the constantly changing sky, sea and landscape around the island of Anglesey and the mountains of Snowdonia.

Audrey first exhibited at Gorstella Gallery in Spring 1995 in a mixed exhibition of watercolours by artists from the North West and has continued to exhibit with the Gallery many times since.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Colin Halliday


Born in Cumbria in 1964 Colin Halliday’s paintings have been described as having painterly qualities and romantic inclinations that shine from the canvas.

Halliday graduated with a BA (Hons) Fine Art degree from Exeter University (1987–88). Since then he has gone on to exhibit in solo and group exhibitions across the UK.

Having worked in many different styles and subject matter his work has evolved into a fresh and unique style that reflects his deep affinity with nature and the British landscape.

Halliday moved to Derbyshire in 2005 and now concentrates on landscape painting and while the work is based on his surroundings it is not however bound by that.
