A fresh young talent is back in Kendal, producing new work with an intense energy.
After travelling extensively for most of her life, Green Door artist Zoë Baker has returned to her home town to generate new and exciting work from her studio at Holme Mills and her new exhibition – The Journey – opens at The Brewhouse at Burgundy’s, Kendal, on Wednesday 2 May.
Zoë says: “Whilst usually experimenting in a described abstract – along with a sometimes unconventional use of mixed media materials and narrative – I aim to create ‘strands of consciousness’ and small notions of recognition through a use of symbolism, colour, texture and pattern. Having the opportunity to see a lot of the world and many aspects of different cultures has provided me with the basis for creating work that encompasses an eclectic mix of elements, based on personal experience and curiosity.”
The Brewhouse is open Tuesday to Sunday, 10.30am-5pm and the exhibition runs until Tuesday 31 July at 19 Lowther Street, Kendal, Cumbria.
The Brewhouse in Kendal is one of two dedicated Green Door galleries – the other being Low Sizergh Barn, just outside Kendal – currently showing work by wildlife artist and fellow Green Door member, Marianne Birkby.
