Two of Lincolnshire’s foremost artists, Anne Wood and Helena P-Styllianides are collaborating for an exciting new exhibition this year.

Double Vision will run at the Sam Scorer gallery in Lincoln from Easter Monday, March 28, until April 10.

Helena, who is of Greek-Cypriot ancestry, works mainly in wood sculpture and has exhibited her work at outdoor events, various gallery exhibitions, and through public art commissions and community projects in London, Essex, Greece and Lincolnshire.

She said: “The intent is to transform the material so that its inner core is revealed more clearly.

“By improvising, the sculpture evolves as an organic thing – taking on plant, animal or marine life forms, dynamic in their varying shapes and by the abstractions they inspire”.

Anne, who is a painter, added: “I love the landscape and coastline.

“Dramatic skies, ebb tides and the fields around me feature in my work.

“Oils are my favourite medium as they suit my way of working.

“I sculpt the oils on canvas or paper to create an impression of the reality of the place.

“I look for texture, colour and shapes as I explore the world around me.

“Nature is my reference as I aim to portray the abstract qualities of light and the mood of what I saw at the time.”

Entry to the exhibition is free.
