Artist Joy Gerrard at Kingsgate Workshops

Another artist I discovered at Kingsgate workshops was Joy Gerrard, whose large ink and brush paintings of protest crowds caught my eye.

Again, all photos here are from her website as she was running a workshop when we popped in.

Often taken from rooftops, the original images are pulled from the media; compression, structure and constraint are all adjectives that come to mind when looking at the work which combines representation & abstraction.
