‘Art Show’ Karen Bowers, Elisabeth Turfrey and Emilia Nylen

5 – 11 December 2012


  • Themes of landscape and nature, relationships, absence, and loss will all feature in The Gardens Gallery ‘Art Show’, which includes fine art and photography from local graduate MA Fine Artists and a BA photography student from Gloucestershire University.


  • Elisabeth  Turfreys work is concerned with recording objects as a substitution  in place of loss and absence. She does this by recording the ‘domestic flotsam’ of everyday life.

‘The photographs allow me to mediate my world and attempt to reconcile the past.’


  • Emilia Nylén work is about recording the shape, structure and fabric of the human body. It visually explores the embodiment of the intimate relationship between people and the human anatomy in its purest form.

“By using alternative processes and an open minded approach I am innovating nude photography and its portraiture qualities.”


  • Karen Bowers paintings explore her interest in the macro and micro of the landscape. Her work is trying to capture moments that may go unnoticed.

“I am interested in painting the experience of a place, through my close observation of landscape and nature”
