We are pleased to welcome local artist Pauline le Britton as our exhibitor in the Oriel Johanna Field Gallery during December.
Pauline is a mixed-media artist living and working in Pembrokeshire. With a BA in Sculpture from Norwich School of Art, and an MA from the Royal College of Art, Pauline describes her work as contemplative.
“There is a stillness as I attempt to hold on to a moment and slow down the passage of time. I explore childhood memories, play and nostalgia – often through strange, life-sized scenarios and papier-mâché figures. Drawing from a wide range of disciplines, my themes oscillate between what feels familiar and ordinary, and the unfamiliar – a realm that has a dark twist of the unknown. I use references from the past to explore the visible and the invisible and try to capture in-between states – often working in response to a particular theme or environment.”
Pauline works independently and in schools, as well as collaborating with other artists. In 1998 she co-founded Sand Palace Arts, an art collective that aims to deliver creative and inspiring arts events, in a welcoming and inclusive way.
Six years ago Pauline was offered the opportunity to return to the practice of bronze casting and joined a small team at MB Fine Arts, a foundry in Clunderwen. Pauline told us “This has significantly improved my skills as an artist and shaped my recent body ofwork for which I am so very grateful. Recently I have found solace in the treasures of the tideline.”
The Oriel Joanna Field Gallery is open to the public when the Box Office is open throughout December.
