Emily Lush & Claire Deacon Joint Art Show

Emily Lush & Claire Deacon Joint Art Show

Emily Lush & Claire Deacon are sharing our gallery space this month with a joint show! 

Emily has previously been a trainee in ARTCO and Claire is currently as well as working in our kitchen (Daconbake) at the Level Best Art Cafe + our sister site, The Oasis Cafe in Manningtree.

Both have created work for this show in their own time and it is a delight to showcase as they have not displayed their art publicly before. The show is a lovely mix of 2 distinct styles and ways of approaching picture making, one is fantastical and nature themed and the other is rooted in the daily urban life of the artist as she experiences it.

Claire's statement:

"I am Claire and I am on the Autistic spectrum.  I love art, drawing, painting and creating pictures on the computer.  I use art both as a form of communication and to relive past experiences and to express my emotions. In the past my art work has been compared to the work of Beryl Cook. I hope you enjoy looking at my work and remember every picture tells a story...." Claire Deacon

Emily's statement:

"My name is Emily and I have autism. This is the first time i’ve displayed any work in Colchester. I started to like drawing a lot when I was 19 years old. I used drawing as a way to deal with a difficult time, express my feelings and also use art to get me through the day and enjoy the process of creating pictures and using different media. My artwork is very varied and some of it is related to nature".   - Emil Lush
