Cornish Abstract Art Exhibition

Monday 8th November to Saturday 13th November 2021

Cornish Abstract is the collaboration of two Cornish pals coming together to share their passion for abstract art. Janine Ward and Hannah Whale have known each other for over 35 years and more recently they have indulged each other in their love of colourful and nonrepresentational work that both they and others produce. They are influenced by artists past and present as well as their own surroundings and lives. Janine’s family have a long history of fishing, an industry still prevalent in her hometown of Looe. Hannah’s ancestors on both sides were miners, her Great Grandfather mining at Caradon whilst her Mum’s family mined further down west in areas around St Just.
 
Transferring their individual thoughts and ideas to canvas or paper Janine and Hannah use various mediums and collage in their work, engaging a variety of brushes and tools, professional and handmade, to create the gestural marks, forms and shapes that make up their individual works. Janine and Hannah have their own unique styles thus appealing to the wider audience and different tastes that make you, the viewer, individual.
 
Some of you may be familiar with Hannah and her work as she had both The Bohwne Yard and Studio 10 in the Cattle Market for several years. She has a diverse body of work, a lot of which will be on show: ceramics, jewellery, original paintings, textiles, homewares and much more.
