‘Counterpoint’ – Sheena Clover and Jacky Bakowski

Throughout April, Level Best will be hosting local artists Sheena Clover and Jacky Bakowski during their exhibition ‘Counterpoint’.

Despite being friends and colleagues for over 10 years, this is the first time Sheena and Jacky have collaborated to present their work. Sharing a passion for painting and print using colour and texture in response to the natural world in a loose contemporary style, their art allows many interpretations to be made from the spectrum of colour and texture used in their work.

Both artists live and work in Colchester and met whilst teaching in the local area and took up art seriously once they had retired. Jacky pursued a Fine Art Degree at Colchester Institute, whilst Sheena became an active member of the Cuckoo Farm Studios. They meet regularly to develop their works of art to inspire and offer support to one another.

However, no two artists are the same. Colour palettes are different, and interpretations can vary, scale, subject matter, and even mood can be reflected in an artist’s work. Both artists are presenting paintings and prints; Sheena has perfected a personal technique and style of mono-printing using a gel plate and multi-layered prints to which she adds paint and ink, whilst Jacky prints from a card cut print.

Some of the works on display are inspired by land, sea, persona stories, and abstract concepts that leave interpretation for the imagination to run wild. Sheena and Jacky welcome interpretations of all kinds and hope you enjoy viewing their artwork as much as they enjoyed making it.

Both artists are very happy to be supporting the work of Level Best and will be donating a portion of each sale to the deserving charity.
