Tricia Scott (ARPS) and Lois Wakeman (LRPS) discovered they share an uncannily similar view of the world soon after they first met in 2010.
Both like to look for abstract images in the everyday – things that many people would walk past unseeing. Living by the coast, seaside subjects naturally suggest themselves.
For this, the first photographic exhibition in the new Lyme Bay Arts Gallery at Symondsbury, they have chosen a series of photographs of boat hulls; abraded, peeling and chipped paint from just above or below the waterline when the boats are afloat. You are invited to admire the surprising patterns revealed, and imagine the scenes suggested by random brushstrokes, corrosion and sanding revealed while the boats are out of water.
Open daily 10.30-4.30. Free admission & parking.
