A joint exhibition of abstract works by contemporary painters Laura Menzies & Stephanie Sandercock
The Crypt, Mariners Church, Norway Square, St Ives. TR26 1NA
Sat June 26th– Fri July 2nd / Open 10 – 5pm daily.
‘Mark this Moment’ is a joint exhibition by contemporary painters Laura Menzies and Stephanie Sandercock that showcases recent work, documenting the artists’ individual experiences of this unique time. Demonstrating a powerful approach to process and the materiality of paint, this exhibition aims to provide a contemplative and uplifting space where viewers can lose themselves in the rich layers of texture, colour and marks that unite these works. Both artists will be at the gallery during the duration of the exhibition to greet visitors and share more about their paintings and processes.
Laura combines oil, cold wax, collage and spray paint to create abstract paintings that are lyrical in style. Her work has an organic and imperfect feel and often contains harmonious pallets and soft shapes, inspired by living stones thrown from the coastline. www.lauramenzies.co.uk
Stephanie creates unique effects with ground limestone and marble plaster. Large-scale acrylic works on aluminium and rusted steel add a strong physical presence to the show, while delicate natural mica crystals catch the light like quartz in the Cornish coastal rock. www.stephaniesandercock.com
