LOUISE DIGGLE Blue Studio 402, Wimbledon Art Fair Winter Show 18-22 November 2021 10 Years at Wimbledon Art Studios
This show celebrates 10 years at Wimbledon Art Studios; my place of work, thoughts and dreams. I’ve been egged on, supported and inspired by so many wonderful studio friends – past and present.
I’m a plein air (work on the spot) painter. My work is all about light and the way it hits places and people and transforms them. Pastel is my preferred medium - I enjoy the glowing, fragile colours and it suits the transience of the moment. It can also be worked rapidly in the changing light. There are two free light shows a day, sunrise and sunset and four different seasons - never ending subject matter. Art is about communication and I hope my work gets across that wonder of the world.
Recent work – from lockdown in Bedfordshire to painting projects in London, Pembrokeshire, Salcombe and beyond are on the walls. For the first time unplugged (unmounted) work is shown - so you can choose your own framing.
Other work is in the browser and bag – all proceeds will be given to the Lady Garden Foundation, based at the Royal Marsden, to raise awareness and funding for gynae health. I’m participating in the Silent Auction for Bug in the Brain. I’m on the council of the Chelsea Art Society, a member of the Small Paintings Group and candidate for the Wapping Group of Artists. I have exhibited with the Pastel Society, Jerram Gallery, Moorwood Art, Medici, Sarah Samuels Fine Art, Surface ICA and Piers Feetham Gallery. Awards received at the Pastel Society, RBA and CAS
