Emma James and Rosemary Cullum, visual artists, May 12 – 19th 2018

Rosemary: I think I desperately wanted to be influenced by the sea and cliffs and tried rather too hard – although I created some works I was not happy with any of them. However, there was one large canvas that was pleasing – very minimalist, totally unrelated to the physical environment, but so happy to have had time and space to create it there.
I got home to the marvellous news that one of my works has been accepted for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. Although this work is nothing to do with Cape Cornwall, it is all part of the journey, and there is no doubt that Brisons Veor was also influential – it will just take time for all the impressions and influences to come to fruition. While we were there we went to the opening of the Tate at St Ives and saw the Patrick Heron paintings. A heavenly experience for me who loves working in blocks of colour.


It was the first time I had combined painting with printmaking and then used the work as book pages. It felt a complete body of work which had to be bound together, connected by where it was made. The freedom from other commitments meant so much more work was possible, and no internet was brilliant!http://www.emmajames.carbonmade.com
