Low Sizergh Barn, Sizergh, near Kendal
21 October – 15 December 2016
A solo exhibition from Karen Lester
Karen finds inspiration from a variety of sources, and it is the natural landscape that has recently become a focus of her work.
She enjoys experimenting and working with different media, including printmaking. She is drawn to the vibrant colours of soft pastel for her landscape paintings whilst she finds the quality of marks made in the process of printmaking particularly fascinating.
All prints are hand crafted using etched plates, some using natural material directly, which are then inked and printed through a press.
In this exhibition at Low Sizergh Barn, Karen’s work has been inspired by the forms of the fells and trees, and the colours of stone in and out of water. It brings together her pastel paintings and etched prints, which capture the beauty of the Cumbrian landscape.
Low Sizergh Barn is open each day, 9.00 – 5.00 .
