We’re pleased to once again be exhibiting pieces by Caren and Peter Threlfall. The work will be on sale in the café until January 2019 and is produced in their family studio in Arnside, where both artists live and work.
Caren uses wool and silk fibres in a ‘painterly’ way in order to create textural moody felt pieces that depict, landscapes, seascapes and floral designs. As well as felt, Caren works in other textile media including: Batiks, Silk Paintings, Hand Made Silk Paper pieces and Devore.
Peter paints mostly in acrylics. His subjects range from Landscapes, Seascapes, Cityscapes and also figurative paintings of Cockle Pickers and Fishermen in Morecambe Bay. All are vibrant and full of texture, as well as being expressive. Peter enjoys interpreting the interplay of light in his work.
Low Sizergh Barn artists
We also have some local artists who feature year round and are a firm favourite with our customers.
Thuline de Cock
Thuline says of her work: “I observe animals, their shapes, gestures and mannerisms and in developing my ideas, I take them quite often out of their context. I like using bold colours. In my work, I explore the possibilities of bringing the subjects in and out of focus. Composition plays an important role in my paintings. I sometimes use perspective to distort images. I enjoy the gathering of information as much as I do the painting. Cows are funny creatures. Just like humans, they have their own characters. Their faces show expressions and a curiosity that never stop to amaze and fascinate me.”
