Lyme Regis Art offers hope in difficult times
For the past year Liz Shewan has been putting together a new body of work with the aim of freeing people from their everyday worries and concerns. Each work expresses a sense of freedom by exploring the sense of family and relationships together with our beloved friend the dog; offering a connection to nature through the countryside, horses and wildlife; and through variations on the theme of 'Light at the end of the Tunnel' to uplift the spirit and offer hope.
These works will be exhibited in the coastal town of Lyme Regis. So, if you are staying at one of the Lyme Regis hotels in the town, then make sure that you visit the Town Mill Malthouse where 'Freedom Sensation' will be exhibiting from May 12th to May 20th 2012.
For the last 13 years, artist Liz Shewan has been expressing the sense of freedom, exploration and healing through her artwork. In particular she has explored many genres of alternative motivational healing methodologies expressing this through her work, both from a microscopic and macroscopic perspective, offering connection to nature and a sense of hope to the viewer.
She loves depicting animals, nature and people. Walking in the countryside with her dog she finds herself remembering moments and portraying them in a rather naive illustrative way; with swirly magical trees and the breath of the wind moving in the skies. She both paints and sculpts, often combing the two.
‘I hope you find the story apt in this current climate - it seems that time travel through our imagination is a great release and healer in such times! Please let me know if I can answer any questions or give you a personal tour of the exhibition.’ says Liz
