Will be exhibiting for Oxford Artweeks as part of Great Coxwell Artists group over weekends 7/8th & 13/14th May 2023 in Great Coxwell village (near Faringdon).
This will include an exhibtion of wirework sculptures, tin sculptures, and digital art paintings and cards. I shall at various times over both weekends be demonstrating my wirework. Please come along, see what I do and say hello, it would be good to see you.
Val Hughes works in both 2D and 3D. Her animal and pet portraits are painted digitally on a laptop before the originals are printed and framed. It’s a medium she has found easy to transport and is mess free!
“I love animals, and cats in particular, although I am allergic to them so I think that’s why paint I them!” she laughs. You’ll also find a range of birds, hares and horses carefully sculpted from wire, and maybe even a pair of shoes ready for dancing. “I love the way that from something as simple as a single strand of wire you can create a 3D representation of an animal and capture its character,” she says. “I have also started using aluminium tin sheet with the wire and have a new range of sea-inspired pieces inclduing small shoals of mackerel, and other surprises."
