In this exhibition we see Donna Drouin return to the landscape to capture those memories of long walks in wild landscapes, and the hot colours of summer. Her abstract landscapes are inspired by the studies done during lockdown and walks across the Sussex South Downs.
The loose lines capturing the remembered flight paths of birds and insects. The hot patches of sunlight and intense indigo shadows under thick hedgerows.
Alongside this stream of work Donna continues to explore the visual storytelling of “The Girl With the Cardboard Wings”. Here Donna is capturing a visual path through the story enclosed in old wooden boxes. The different elements displayed using a variety of printmaking, soft sculpture, paintings and drawings. The representations for the story are referenced from Donna’s childhood, her earliest memories of her first home to personal encounters with nature. This is an ongoing work, the progress of which was slowed due to lockdown.
