Town land­scape in­spired art­work

Macclesfield Express - - MACCLESFIELD PEOPLE -

AN ARTIST will show watercolours in­spired by the ge­ol­ogy and land­scape in and around Bolling­ton.

Bar­bara Ni­cholls based her­self in the town to cre­ate her lat­est se­ries of paint­ings. She said she was in­spired by Tegg’s Nose, the Sad­dle of Ker­ridge and the Peak Dis­trict’s ge­ol­ogy and land­scape. Bar­bara, who lives in Lon­don, is pre­sent­ing her work at an ex­hi­bi­tion at Clarence Mill. It will also be shown in Ger­many this sum­mer – in Mu­seum Kurhaus Kleve.

She said the way the paint set­tles in her work re­flects the Bolling­ton land­scape.

Bar­bara said: “Af­ter vis­it­ing Bolling­ton and the sur­round­ing hills in 2013, I re­alised it would pro­vide a rich source of ma­te­rial for new work. Es­tab­lish­ing my stu­dio in Clarence Mill in 2014 helped me to im­merse my­self in the land­scape and the com­mu­nity of Bolling­ton.”

She will ex­hibit at Clarence Mill on Sun­day, May 17, 2pm to 6pm.
