Lindy Dunbar – Rachel Clark:
An Exhibition of Drawings, Paintings and Prints
13th December 2017 – 23rd January 2018
Lindy Dunbar: Drawings and Paintings
The work Lindy has chosen to exhibit at Pelham House is mainly comprised of figurative works and portraits, and will be on display in the hotel’s atrium and reception gallery spaces.
Lindy says: “I create my work in my studio in Seaford, or from models nearby. From my point of view, it’s all about movement, life and fluidity. I enjoy using a variety of materials in my journey and experiment with strange uncertain mixtures. If it’s a quick or moving pose: perhaps oil bars, charcoal, pastel, solid ink sticks, ink pencils or liquid ink with a stick (an ordinary garden stick snapped so that the resulting fronds are varied, serendipitous and hopefully enhance the life of the drawing). If it’s a longer study, then oil paints are truly wonderful with their consistency, strength, variety of texture and glow of colour.”
Prints of Lindy’s work are sold in John Lewis and she has been featured in the Sussex Life magazine (July 2015 edition) as ‘Artist in Residence’. She considers herself to be very fortunate in having been allowed to draw Rambert dance workshops at The Birley Centre, Eastbourne College. Lindy has also exhibited locally, both at the Birley Centre and at Glyndebourne, as well as at various London Art Fairs.
After training and working as a teacher, Lindy later tutored life drawing and also studied Art History with the Open University gaining a BA Hons and working towards bringing a deeper understanding to her work.

Rachel Clark: Prints from her Travels
Rachel works as a freelance book designer and artist/printmaker. She studied at Edinburgh College of Art and specialised in illustration and printmaking. In her final year, she spent a term studying at Rhode Island School of Design in the United States.
Rachel loves to travel and draw on location. From sketching in cafés to visiting towns and cities, including Lewes, London and Amsterdam, prints emerge from her experiences within these different locations. Images take on a new life as she experiments using different printmaking techniques, including lino and screen-printing. Each print is one of a limited edition and hand printed in her studio.
Rachel has had successful solo exhibitions and has exhibited in group shows including the Affordable Art fair, Battersea and Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition, London. This year, she designed the cover for the May edition of Viva Lewes and took part in Lewes Art Wave.
She will be exhibiting in the hotel’s bar area. More of her work can be viewed at: www.rachelclarkart.com and she can be followed on twitter and Instagram: @rachelclarkart
