Natasha Whittaker

Saturday, 1st February 2020 until Friday, 7th February 2020

Natasha Whittaker - our Artist in Residence from Falmouth University is showing her work in progress.
Natasha has always loved Cornwall in the winter (her favourite season!) and so for her time here at Redwing, she's chosen to focus on winter trees in our beautiful landscape. In particular, those shaped by the years of raging winds that swoop from the sea. Natasha is currently absorbed in tree studies and colour experiments. All part of the creative process some of which will be on display at the exhibition.
Natasha hopes you enjoy her collection as much as she's enjoyed creating it.
