Warehouse on the Wash

ALISON CROOSE King's Lynn Arts Centre


> King's Lynn Arts Centre

The landscape of West Norfolk is depicted through the eyes of seven artists from Norwich Warehouse Artists Studios, established 15 years ago by graduates from Norwich School of Art and Design.

The spacious Shakespeare Barn allows for the wide range of images to be studied independently, such as Sophie Marritt's large-scale painting exploring the issue of climate change and the threat to fragile coastlines.

Alison Hall produced eye-catching work in the form of a colourful matrix of 70 snatches of scenery, while a more spiritual landscape is represented by Christine Allman's paintings of folds.

Imogen Bardwell focused on Seahenge at Holme with photos and video, Lynda Williams also utilised photography, Kevin Lee used flotsam and jetsam in his sculpture and Stephen Cross opted to study Lynn's buildings and the links with Holland.
