Sydenham Arts Festival 'Artists Trail' 2013

There are even more painters, printers, potters, photographers, poets and performance artists, jewellers, glass artists, sculptors and fabric technicians than in previous Festivals. This year the Artists Trail is spread over three weekends giving you time to enjoy fantastic artistic skills.

Yoke Matze[i][/i] “The pleasure of looking, exploring and making connections is an important element of my work. I am inspired by the land and the endless cycles of nature. Fine-art printing is the basis of my work.”

Yoke gives printing demonstrations at 12noon and 4pm working in a traditional darkroom. Visitors can observe Yoke creating a photogram. Exciting prints will be made by placing objects and materials onto photo sensitive papers and then exposing to light.

John Chappelow “Landscapes, seascapes, abstracts, people, still life. I simply enjoy making pictures, particularly if they can convey more than is visually apparent or explore the interaction between perception and deception that is inherent in photography.”
