It's April and our artist this month is Sylvia ten Kley.

Her finely drawn pencil and needlework on paper are meant to be viewed from nearby, and pull the viewer in to an almost intimate experience.

Colour plays a subdued yet subtle role in these works - the needlework is white, representing lightness; the pencil drawing is dark: heaviness.

Her etchings are more decorative, and in these she has allowed colour into her work.

All of her work is made to be looked at closely. It radiates a tranquil simplicity which invites one to take a step back from the rush of daily life and spend a few moments in quiet contemplation.

Have a look at her work on her website:

The opening was on 7th April and her work remains on show until the end of the month.
