A colaboration of two talented Glastonbury Artists, Sandra Brant and Angela Watson. Showing an ecclectic mix of subjects and media.
There is a quote by Pre-Raphaelite artist Rossetti which constantly inspires me: “People who dream in broad daylight learn about things which are never revealed to those who only dream at night”
In all of my work there is an element of the daydream, a doorway to other dimensions for the viewer to access. Working spontaneously I try and capture the immense beauty and colour that surrounds us on all levels every day of our lives. I am inspired by the natural world and a love of colour and geometric forms and their correspondences, along with myths, legends and spirituality. Working mainly in acrylic and occasionally oil or watercolour on any surface that will stay still long enough to paint on!
I have many interests – all art related – including:- narrow boat art, taxidermy, painted furniture, decorated skulls, wall hangings and painting murals.
Painting in oils and acrylics, she is constantly inspired by the Somerset landscape . Moving to Glastonbury from the North East of England some 15 years ago she feels a deep connection with the land and sacred sites of the area. Her passion for colour has led her to develop collages using batik and photography and artworks created from recycled materials which she hand dyes.
Angela holds regular painting and drawing classes in Somerset and Creative empowerment retreats further afield in Cornwall and Scotland
