Over the next few months I will be populating this page with art and artists I particularly like or who have already participated in the Art Residencies here at ArtSpace Gîtes.
Trisha Lambi is an award winning artist known for her bold and lavish oil paintings. Of her work, Lambi says 'Light and its effect on form is my inspiration and whilst I don't particularly aspire to convey a conscious emotion in my work it seems to emerge of its own will'.
She has exhibited widely in Australia and internationally. Highlights of her career include her selection to represent Australia at the 2006 and 2007 Guangzhou Art Fair in China and her selection as a finalist in the 2012 Art Taipei International Competition. She was a Zone winner in the London Olympics 2012 Art Show and was selected as one of the Best Picks for Painting in the 2013 Dubai International Emerging Artist Award. Her latest achievement is her selection to exhibit in Underbelly, a group show curated by Dab Art at H Gallery in Ventura California and her selection as a finalist in the 2018 Artbox Project New York.

Stunning silver jewellery by London artist Helen Foster-Turner.
Well worth a visit to her site. She also runs one-to-one training courses and has been know to appear in strange places... Discworld-con to name but one!
A Picture Book
Pansy Boy is a picture book written and illustrated by artist Paul Harfleet. Rhyming couplets tell the story of a boy who revels in the joys of summer, exploring the flora and fauna around him. Reluctantly he returns to school where he is subjected to incessant bullying. Intelligent and bright, he is driven to create a plan to reclaim his school...
Pansy Boy is a creative extension of Paul Harfleet’s ongoing artwork, The Pansy Project. The artist has been planting pansies at the site of homophobia since 2005 and it is this revelation that ends Pansy Boy, bringing the concept into the real world. The Pansy Project has featured in many exhibitions and festivals around the world. Notably his Pansy Project Garden won a Gold Medal at the RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show in 2010. In 2015 Harfleet was the subject of a documentary commissioned by CANAL+, it went on to win several documentary film awards. His work is currently on show in Never Going Underground an exhibition that explores the past, present and future of LGBT+ activism at the People’s History Museum in Manchester.
