Abstract paintings by Annie Ward.
Based on Lyme Bay Artist Annie Ward’s research into satellite photographs and historic maps of the Dorset coastline, these abstract works explore the changeable spaces where the land meets the sea. Annie begins with detailed drawings on canvas that she scrubs over with layers of paint allowing shapes to be defined, buried and rediscovered in an editing process that reflects the ever-changing nature of coastal margins.
Primarily a painter, she also constructs pieces using textiles, paper and found objects, like the bonnets constructed from the pages of Jane Austen novels, one of which she donated to the Museum and is normally on show. At the Rotunda Gallery, Lyme Regis Museum, Bridge Street, Lyme Regis DT7 3QA, open Tues-Sat 10am-5pm and 10am-4pm on Sundays. www.lymeregismuseum.co.uk
