After seeing the sculpture garden visit our gallery in The Snug.
We promote artists living and working in Wales as well as new artists...and we are proud to support community arts.
As we move into autumn Louise Horton brings us a beautiful free-form celebration of nature.
Journey through the glasshouse
October - November

The humidity hits your lungs as soon as you leave the Earth's biodome behind and enter the glasshouse. Excitement rises as you inhale the warm air, your ears tingle with new sounds and your eyes feast on the journey ahead. All of your senses are open and your very cells start to communicate with the lifeforms that have been nurtured within.
For you are all one; the differences are obvious and yet you are the same.
I contemplated my trips to the amazing Eden Project and the National Botanic Garden of Wales where I experienced the magnificent giant glasshouses.
I became super aware of flower, leaf and seed shapes, noticing them even more than usual; they crept into my psyche and were translated into these paintings.
There is something intimidating about the beginning of something and often there is fear of completion. Having gone through the process again and survived, I encourage others to be brave and go forwards always.
Louise Horton graduated from St Martin's College of Art with a degree in Graphic Design and has worked in many different mediums since including paint, printing and textiles.
Most of Lou's work is available to buy as greeting cards from @Unit5 in Ffwrwm Shops...
