Loretta Wall

Painting & Print

Loretta has recently moved to Ilfracombe with her family. She has worked in many artistic fields including: art teacher in a prison; passementerie maker for the textile industry and artworker in the publishing of newspaper and medical journals.

As well as showing work from her past, which will include sea paintings; collages and drawings, she will be exhibiting her new body of work titled, immerse. These monoprints are irregular-shaped, unfamiliar images, placed inaccurately on the page causing a certain unease. In contrast,  these images are grounded by more tangible familiar colours, influenced by the North Devon coastline. This colour palette is well considered and chosen with confidence to give a feeling of serenity and calm.

There will also be other fun stuff to see too – featured under her pseudonym

Joe d’ vivre, which can be found in the 43 shop on the Fore Street. Joe d’ vivre is play on words taken from the French phrase joie de vivre. This positive brand message aims to to spark joy and promote a positive outlook on life.

If you require any further information please pop into the 43 shop or visit www.lorettawall.com or better still, just come and have a chat!
