About the artists in this exhibit

Liesha Yaz  

Crowborough/ Heron's Ghyll.  Oil Painting

 

Rather than creating a site specific landscape, Liesha is driven by the desire to show the spirit and energy of a place, allowing the viewer to contemplate.  Her painting is an emotional response to a place, a feeling or experience. Liesha uses references from nature, the suggestion of a landscape, a hint of sky reflected in water, or a storm brewing in the distance. She feels that the paintings are completed by the viewers imagination and response, a collaboration between the artist and the viewer.

  

Catherine Greenwood

Forest Row/ West Hoathly.  Etchings & Print.   

Catherine explores new processes and non toxic and environmentally friendly materials. She specialises in making etchings and mono-prints and solar etchings inspired by landscape and the figure and their connection to the the sky; natural elements and seasons are recurring themes throughout her work. Catherine’s prints capture the ancient and a sense of place and combining traditional methods alongside new formats and materials.

                       Richard is an artist and                                                                                          sculptor himself, with experience of working                                                             with a wide range of mediums. Richard moved to                                                  Mayfield in August 2018 and is currently renovating a new                                         space to provide a base for The Arts Portfolio.

 

Prior to moving to Mayfield Richard worked as a psychologist                                          with vulnerable young people within the education system.                                              He plans to continue to support young people to have access                                            to and be inspired by the arts, as well as showcasing                                                             exceptional young talent across all the 'arts'                                                                           including visual arts, dance, performance & music.
