Menna Angharad studied Botany before training at Byam Shaw School of Art in London, and gaining an MA in Fine Art from Cardiff University. Painting landscapes and still life works in oil on linen canvas, she works directly from life, creating subtly beautiful images that celebrate the precious and intriguing nature of everyday objects.
Sarah Nechamkin met Susan Williams-Ellis in about 1935 whilst studying at the Chelsea Polytechnic, and they stayed lifelong friends. Oriel Brondanw has been bequeathed a substantial amount of Sarah's work and this compact Library display will open the door on that work and the life of a Jewish-Russian artist from Ibiza.
Fragments in Time celebrates the landscape before the Cob dried the Traeth Mawr 1810. Sian captures fragmentary traces left by time. Working in the field, she presses porcelain clay and liquid latex directly into stone creating translucent artefacts that invite a reappraisal of that landscape. In so doing, new forms emerge, mapped into the fired porcelain and latex. Lighting reveals further textures and marks embedded in these delicate materials.
