Cyanotype Eight, 2017-2018, 65x45cm, £3200
The Cyanotype Spring
On show from February - April 2018.
Artist and designer, Carolyn Quartermaine, studied Fine Art followed by an MA at the prestigious Royal College of Art, London.
Her work spans over three decades at the cutting edge of art, art direction, design and interiors. She has taught at the RCA, and was made a visiting professor to the textile school.
She recently renewed her room, The Glade, Sketch, which has découpaged walls using over thirty thousand pieces of paper and hand painted and printed furniture.
The most important ‘tool’ that influences her entire spectrum of work, and the thing that unites them all is, simply, her eye. It is this discerning eye for photography, collage and painting that has produced an intimate and captivating series on show at Connolly.
Concentrating on photography over the past two years, and with a major exhibition at the Musée Fragonard in Grasse, France, Carolyn’s cyanotypes on show are both photographic and painterly. “This is something I’m fascinated with as a process and as a historical medium - they allow me a way of mark making that’s the closest to my photography”
