Life on the Edge


Louise Nevett & Richard Curtis

Gallery 2

28 February- 13 March
The paintings, drawings and prints featured in this exhibition are reflections of the environment in which the two artists live, addressing landscape, social and domestic issues and identity.

Richard Curtis was born in Shropshire and trained at Shrewsbury and Newport Schools of Art and Middlesex Polytechnic. He has lived in Kent and taught art here for thirty years and has exhibited in England and Wales. His work varies from the barren beauty of the Medway estuary and the surrounding woodland to reflections on urban deprivation contrasting with the historical significance of the surrounding towns.

Louise Nevett was born in Kettering, Northants and studied Graphic Design at Canterbury College of Art and later Fine Art at KIAD. She worked as a free-lance illustrator with over fifty non-fiction books for children to her name and work in many magazines and journals and exhibited in England and France. She has also taught art to young people with health needs and adults. The artist often uses found imagery to question social expectations around motherhood, food and related issues. The exhibition also features portraits of contemporary life and exploring individual identity.
