Visiting artist: Shingle Street (2019, mixed media)

This charming landscape by visiting artist Dorothy Locke dialogues with Williams’ Lamdscapes series and is inspired by the famous ‘Shingle Street’ stretch of houses along a stony Suffolk beach.

Rich with the warm colours of a summer holiday and redolent with the warm glow of childhood nostalgia, the work both draws us back into our own childhood memories while, in its gently ironic layers of glitter, inviting us to consider whether the bucolic glow of childhood memories is not perhaps a layer we add later in the hope, perhaps, of creating a time in our past when innocence was ours.
