An exhibtion of watercolour paintings, etchings and collographs by Carole Saxon.
"I use watercolour because I find it endlessly adaptable. With it you can show the thin and watery light that filters through the trees; equally I can build it up, layer upon layer, to produce intense and saturated colour. I may wish to use it in a soft wash which I can later cut through with water to reveal the detail, or I may apply it with a flat blade, dragging and scrumbling it across the surface of the paper. Sometimes I will use masking to draw, and rollers to apply wet colour. The experimental aspects of my work characterise the resulting images. The image is the ultimate aim of my painting , therefore the techniques I use, though not strictly watercolour in tradition, justify the end." Carole Saxon, artist
