ANDY HOLLINGHURST

Andy Hollinghurst, a Doncaster based artist, was born in Preston.
 

While Andy worked as a teacher, roughly 15 years in the past, his mental health unfortunately begun to deteriorate to the point where he had to leave his love of teaching. With old habits in the form of art, Andy’s painting became his crutch during these times and assisted with his return to form. This lead to his theme of darkness turning to light, prevalent in many of his artistic works.
 

After this experience, Andy became an advocate for mental health. Working alongside Time To Change, Mind and M.H.F.A, Andy has also given many talks to crowds campaigning for them to understand the value of mental health care.

ANNE MALLENDER

ART FROM THE HEART 

 

Anne is Doncaster born and bred and mostly self taught albeit she did attend art college at the ages of 16 and 32 where she achieved a National Diploma in illustration and design.  She focusses a great deal on her art recently and find it an extremely therapeutic way in which to keep her out of the darkness during her cancer journey.  In most of her paintings she has experimented with different mediums as she likes the various effects they produce.  She finds that adding bright/ bold colours produces positive vibes which help her emotionally.

"A bit of ' art therapy ' is super stress- busting!" 
 

"I hope you will enjoy my first art solo exhibition and maybe even you can find joy by having a go yourselves!"

JANET WALLACE

Janet Wallace is a mixed media abstract artist based in Doncaster. She uses bold colours, geometric shapes, nature, the universe, and human form to create both abstract and abstract realism pieces. Through abstract painting Janet is on a deeper exploration of self,

 

‘I knew that to be a better artist, I had to dig deep and challenge myself to acknowledge and accept the person I am to become. I have always had great communication skills but talking about my deeper feelings has always been difficult, for fear of rejection. I want to connect with you and art is the way for me to do that. Connection is what we all truly want’.

 

Working with the archetypes of explorer, hero and lover, Janet is exploring new ways of expressing the self and emotions. Discovering more deeply her own personal connection with the senses of the human connection and universal energy. Elements of sensuality, uniqueness warrior boldness.

HELEN HARDMAN

Helen Hardman works in a wide variety of mediums including oils, acrylics, and inks. 

Helen does not use traditional symbolic meaning, preferring to invent her own, she says, “symbols mean different things to different people, some people view spiders as scary while others do not, thus I use symbols direct to my personal experiences.”

Helen’s acrylic paintings often feature eyes representing that while ill with paranoid schizophrenia she believed she was being spied on.

The style of her paintings can range from either calm in appearance to scary, representing the range of emotions she felt while ill.

TERRY CHIPP

Terry Chipp employs a broad range of subjects, styles and techniques. A common thread is the things that are unseen or missing. The mists that obscure a scene; the shadows behind the figures and the gaps and distortions as memories fade.  Alongside this is an aim to make an image that is striking from a distance yet still rewards close scrutiny through layering textures and glazes of acrylics, adding and removing paint until a balance is reached.  He uses a similar approach to drawing where an image may be drawn, obscured, erased and redrawn many times before completion.
 

Certain themes are explored and revisited including Character and Performance, Landscape and Atmosphere, Place and Time which may be represented literally or in abstract form according to the subject.

The appearance of a subject is a small part of what the subject is.

His pictures are prompts to the imagination allowing the viewer to complete them from their own experience.
 

"I seek the essence – not the particular."

SALLIE ASHE

Sallie Ashe is a non-commercial artist living in Doncaster. Her artwork touches on subjects important to her, such as the issues surrounding people seeking asylum.

Formerly trained as a surface pattern designer in the 1970s, Sallie then worked primarily in fabric design for women’s fashions, greetings cards and ceramics before moving to a career as a solo artist. At this time, her chosen medium was water-colour featuring delicate botanical paintings whose style is in stark contrast to the dramatic colours and textures of her work today.
