Shelley Wingrove – Printed from The Little Black Mare Studio
The Little Black Mare studio is nestled amongst the breathtaking beauty of Wenlock Edge in the Shropshire Hills, inspiring art and printmaking which truly captures the beating heart of nature and the natural world.
Named after my gorgeous pony Maisie (the original black mare) the art created in my studio goes through a similar process. Inspiration comes from Maisie’s wildflower meadow, or my long walks in the woods and hills that surround my home, with my lurchers Tilda and Lola.
I love to watch the light at play on the trees and fields. I’ll capture scenes or just little details in my sketchbook, or perhaps collect a leaf or some other treasure. Then I’ll spend some time in my studio, bringing ideas together and deciding which print process will best capture the image’s wholeness and beauty. My prints are mostly nature themed, always produced with much love and endless cups of Earl Grey.
Elena Cassidy-Smith – Visual Artist
Elena is an interdisciplinary visual artist and early career PhD researcher. She frequently works in a site contextual or site responsive way that is sensitive to time, place and people. She is interested in the transdisciplinary possibilities of art and science, and the narratives that arise from this. Her work often examines the overlooked and obscure, tapping in to oral histories, collective understandings and forgotten truths. Her current research is focused on the ontology of time. Can we touch the past like it never really went away? What does it feel like?
