Marylouise Delaney just loves food; growing, cooking, eating (sometimes photographing in Lidl) and painting food.…
Pip Barfield’s art is inspired by nature and walking in wild places with her lurcher! The colours and textures of hedgerow flowers, beach flotsam and windblown baler twine all influence her mark making and sensory recall. As a printmaker and painter, the blending of inks and paints to create vibrant and poetic interpretations of flowers and abstract landscapes is how Pip creates a narrative of nature.
She is moved by ancient places, often slipping through a thin place and sensing previous ancestors and events that inhabit our landscapes. Much of her work evolves from visiting local beaches and exploring coastal hill forts, collecting feathers and worn fragments of pottery and rusty metal. These found objects inform her images, patterns and textures which appear on paper while making monoprints and etchings.
Pip started her artistic journey after her parents died and she adopted a lurcher for company. This led her to a foundation degree in Leek, followed by a move to Cornwall in 2018 where she studied BA Fine Art at Falmouth. Since graduating in 2022 she has exhibited her work in Morgans Gallery, Newlyn Gallery and The Exchange, The Crypt St Ives, Falmouth Art Gallery and the Poly.
