Originally from Scotland, Imogen Bone moved to Cornwall to study Illustration, followed by a Masters Degree in Art and The Environment at Falmouth College of arts. Aside from travelling to document the world around her, Imogen has settled here and made Cornwall and The Isles of Scilly her home ever since.
Using acrylic and oil paint, Imogen has quickly made her mark as an artist who uses colour and texture to define her work,
"The world I see is a balance of marks and hues. Sometimes a blur of colour is just enough to capture something, other times I need to work away in layers of patterns so the details of the image emerge."
As well as creating to encourage appreciation, and to capture the beauty of our surroundings, Imogens work also serves as a portrayal of how our environment is changing.
"As artists we have the ability to communicate and document that change. This puts us in the unique position to offer translation and project restorative solutions and ideas. Overall, visual communication drives my work, whether that is to capture a moment or help explain or to instigate action."
TO SUBMIT WORK TO THE SUMMERHOUSE GALLERY
Here at The Summerhouse we love to support both established and new, up and coming artists with an affinity to Cornwall. We do recieve a very large volume of submissions, and although we take care to view every artists work, it is very difficult to discuss work with every single artist who gets in touch.
Please send us a selection of work which you feel best represents you, along with an artists statement and a list of other galleries which represent your work if applicable. You can email this to firstname.lastname@example.org or post to our address, with contact details (email or telephone) which we can reach you via should your application be successful.
We look forward to hearing from you.
