Anji Timlin | Joan Day Painting Bursary
Exhibition opens: Saturday 02 November 6-9pm
Exhibition closes: Sunday 22nd December 2019
Go, sit upon a mountain steep,
And view the prospect round;
The hills and vales, the valley’s sweep,
The far horizon bound
Anji Timlin is the recipient of the Joan Day Painting Bursary for 2019. Anji proposed to create a body of work inspired by Elizabeth Southwart’s book ‘Brontë Moors and Villages, From Thornton to Haworth’ published in 1923 and recently discovered by the artist. Anji has been fascinated by Southwart’s book and the Brontës’ journey from Thornton to Haworth and the dramatic landscapes that you may expect to find upon the way.
This journey mirrors her own life trajectory from her upbringing around Thornton and Denholme, her father ran a business in the Wesleyan School on West Lane, to where she has now returned to live, in Haworth.
In this series of paintings, Anji has developed her painting practice whilst first hand experiencing the wild-weathered, ever-changing Pennine landscape that surrounds the centre and that once inspired the sisters writing. Anji’s depictions use layers-upon-layers and vibrant colours in an almost graphic way, whilst evoking a seasonal familiarity to her paintings.
