LEAVE//REMAIN | 2016 Bank Street Arts members’ exhibition | Tuesday 25th- Sunday 30th October
Myfanwy Williams, 23rd June 2016.
‘This piece of work was inspired by the result of the Referendum on 23rd June 2016, when the British people voted to leave the European Union. My response was one of shock and heartbreak, fearing the myriad implications of the decision. It is a triptych, linked to the subject matter, charting the possibility of change on the world’s stage. The sub-titles are Remain, Vote and Leave.’
‘I was brought up in Zambia, studied Classics and Education at St Mary’s University in London, and later graduated from Sheffield Hallam University with a B.A. Honours in Fine Art. As teacher and artist, my interests have often overlapped. My paintings and photographs reflect the many factors which have influenced my work, including travel, archaeology, changes in society and a love of nature and landscape. My work often explores classical and religious references and frequently makes use of the idea of palimpsest in its broadest sense. Colourful expressionism is an important part of my art.’
Myfanwy’s studio is at Exchange Place in Sheffield. Her website is at www.myfanwywilliams.com. 23rd June 2016 is being exhibited as part of LEAVE//REMAIN, our 2016 members’ exhibition. We’ll be hosting an open evening at 6pm on Friday 28th Oct.
