‘HOME AND AWAY’
A solo exhibition by Belynda Sharples
01.06.2022 – 02.07.2022
Belynda sharples is an artist, designer and ceramicist, who has spent her life observing and drawing the domestic and everyday. Belynda began her career in interior design, working in London before setting up her own interior design practice in Norfolk.
In 2005, she joined her partner in his printing business and launched her own collection of fabric and wallpaper designs. For the last ten years however, focus has been on painting and more recently ceramics. Here, a combination of natural drawing talent and a very personal sense of pattern and colour create work in response to the domestic familiar objects and spaces that surround her. She works intuitively, without a plan or direction, fuelled only by the objects around her.
A recent trip to India has left an indelible mark on my senses; the colour, the texture, the people and smells have seeped into my consciousness and I now feel I am treading a new path of rich landscapes of such diversity I have not seen or dreamt of before
