Three Views

Emmy Franks, Tracey Turner and Rebecca Morris

16th – 22nd December 2015

  • Emmy Franks // Print

    Emmy Franks studied art at Chelsea College of Art and Design and then Camberwell College of Arts where she specialised in drawing. She now draws, prints and paints from her studio in Cheltenham. Drawing is the starting point for all her work which takes inspiration from the shapes, colours and patterns found in the immediate environment. Much of Emmy’s current work is produced using paper stencils and an etching press, a process which involves building up layers of colour to give depth to the simple and distilled imagery of the stencils. This process produces single unique images (monoprints). She also work in woodcuts, which she hand prints, and dry point etching.

  • Tracey Turner // Textile

    Tracey Turner is a textile artist, particularly drawn to contemporary monochromatic works. Her love of texture and sewing have always played an important role in her life and she is now able to dedicate more time working out of her barn in the Cotswolds, creating her own fabrics using wet felting methods and working these into small and large abstract panels. She is inspired by winter, it’s more restricted palettes and its demands of warm, soft textures, but more recently, shots of colour from the cotswold landscapes are influencing her works.

  • Rebecca Morris // PaintRebecca Morris is a Cheltenham-based artist who studied Fine Art and Photography at the University of Gloucestershire before going onto a career in broadcast journalism. She has returned to her artistic roots over the last few years and works out of her Montpellier studio. Rebecca draws inspiration from the changing light, texture and colour of her environment, be it the Cotswold hills or Cornish seascapes. She enjoys working on large scale abstract landscapes in acrylic and oil.
