I will be showing some photographs taken on a (fairly) recent trip to Western Australia.
Western Australia is a fantastic place, with landscapes that stretch away to unfeasible distances at the horizon. In many of the enormous and beautiful parks, the earth is cleft by deep gorges, the walls displaying thousands of layers that have been deposited over millennia.
Letterpress prints and cards, drawings and photographs.
Letterpress in a printing technique dating back to the 15th century. The process involves direct connection between inked wood or metal blocks and type, with paper in a press. Each print is hand set and individually printed which gives a variation in the impression on the paper, so no two prints are the same.
Yurim Gough came to Southville three years ago, not able to speak a single word of English, coming from Seoul in South Korea where she was a successful fashion designer of high heeled shoes for over a decade. Yurim is now going back to art. She experiments in a wide range of subjects and media but the focus of this exhibition is portraits and life drawing.
I graduated from Herefordshire College of Art in 2001 with BA (Hons) in Design Crafts and now live in Bristol.
Landscapes are my inspiration and how light and colour evoke their unique atmosphere. Mountains, seascapes, vistas, of places I have travelled all inspire me, especially the west coast of Scotland and Ireland, and some magical places in Herefordshire, the Welsh mountains and the Somerset levels.

My work is on display in the Beauley Room at the Southville Centre.
Fused glasswork is a great way to explore colour and light and this is the main focus of my work. I enjoy the design process and technical discipline that each piece requires. Each finished piece is unique and whilst work can be repeated, each will have it’s own dimensions.
Transparent glass can be enhanced by both natural and directed light and pieces can be designed for different settings. I have used natural and abstract forms in several pieces to explore layering and composition, as well as rhythm in pattern.
Colourful and affordable screen prints to cheer up your walls.
This year my views of Bristol’s coloured terraces will be joined by a number of allotments, the odd submarine and more than a few spirographs.
I am a former graphic designer and illustrator who fell on hard times and had to resort to working with computers to pay the mortgage. Now I plan to have my revenge on technology by showing it at its devious worst; robots, half-human creatures, and monsters illustrated in marker pen on paper. Remember, if it has wires inside it, don’t trust it!
Robots and half human creatures, illustrated in marker pen on paper.
You'll find whimsical ladies (most over size 16), cats, birds, zebras, geese, cheerful British holiday makers and tango dancers. All made from plastic bags and papier mache. Hope they'll make you smile.
Also black and white, and colourful, figurative paintings.
