Pieces of Me – Bridgeen Butler Art Exhibition
8 July - 17 July
“Pieces of Me”
Landscapes, Seascapes and Escapes
Solo Exhibition of original artworks by Bridgeen Butler
Bridgeen’s ‘ PIECES of me’ collection demonstrates in a variety of forms how she has been influenced by the landscape and seascape of the North Antrim coast. Representationally and symbolically earth, wind, water and fire appear in her work in many guises. She professes to have no particular style and is reluctant to be defined by one; rather her art process is lead by experimentation with a variety of themes, techniques and materials to discover new ways of expression.
While art has always been a passion and a lifelong interest for Bridgeen, it was not until she retired that she was able to devote her time and energy to producing art. She describes artmaking as her full time pastime and therapy. “I begin each new piece with no plan and let the marks drive the process, feeling my way into my work; every day is an new opportunity for learning and exploring art making and self expression”.
Bridgeen sums up her relationship with art making as “It feels like I am doing what I was always supposed to do” and laughs when she says “better late than never”.
