The death of my lovely sister Rosalyn early in 2000 shaped this tree
themed imagery for some time.
Religion which stirred in me during my two years at the British
School in Rome (1983 -1985) resurfaces repeatedly in the work
and most recently in ‘The Road to Santiago’ series (2019)
which was inspired by my friend Torin Brown’s Camino pilgrimage.
In 2002 Terry Sole came into my broken life and helped the healing.
The majority of these exhibited works are, therefore, produced in two
mainly happier decades.
My sadness at the death of my mother in 2011 and my close friend Hazel Seaton in 2017 influence
the work, and sometimes the lack of it.
This exhibition only touches the surface of twenty years, and includes studio views and still life;
travel inspired works; the economic crash of 2009; portraits of myself and my sisters and
fun loving cats.
I have continued to produce constructions www.wildeconstructions.co.uk
and sculptural ceramics, some of which are included in this exhibition which runs until 23rd November,
Fridays and Saturdays 11:00 - 5:00pm at OneNewStreet Art Gallery in Herne Bay, Kent
Many years ago I was told that I think too much but that has been the essence of my creativity.
In 1999 I began working on a tree inspired series of works including ‘The Millennium Tree’
with two thousand falling leaves.
