SPUD Graduate Launchpad Artists 2020
As recent Fine Art graduates sharing the Launch Pad space at SpudWorks, this exhibition will show our individual and speculative art practices through a process of collaborative curation.
Working in this space encompassed by the New Forest, post academia, we have been able
to access and propagate experimental location-based and embodied practice, exploring and
nurturing new ideas. Through physical mapping, recording and reflection, this work makes
connections through an open curiosity with the natural world.
Open from January 2021
New Forest Plein Air Exhibition

Penny Lamprell BA(Hons)
I am a graduate of Camberwell Art College and have lived in Lymington for the past twenty years. I am out most days in the forest, usually around Setley and am very familiar with the wildlife and landscape. The forest never fails to inspire me each day, whatever the weather. I take a sketchbook out with me when walking to get ideas for longer plein air sessions. I work quickly outdoors as I love the immediacy and intimacy of working in the elements. I may then work on a few details later in the studio but for me the only way to get the feel of a particular tree or viewpoint- the tones, colours, depth and light - is to be there on the spot. Working en plein air is, however, not for the faint hearted and I may occasionally have to make way for angry looking bovines.
