READING GUILD OF ARTISTS

Picture of the Month

February 2018
by Lynda South

Pic of the month

Gasometer No. 5
Sun print & pencil
40 x 30cm


I have chosen ‘Gasometer No. 5’ by Lynda South. The images appear faded, washed out in this Cyanotype, wholly fitting to the subject matter: gasometers are fast disappearing across our landscapes; now largely unused, decaying relics of our once 'great' industrial past. One has a sense in this picture of transience, of memories fading, of being left with hints and traces of what once was... Here is a wonderful marriage of subject matter to technique - l like the fact that the prints have been made by sunlight, in places almost bleaching out the imagery.

When looking at the series by Lynda, I am also reminded of the Bechers photographs and the work of Idris Khan.

Chosen from our Online Art Gallery by Tom Cartmill

 

The Reading Guild of Artists (RGA), founded in 1930, is a diverse group of professional and amateur artists in the Berkshire area.

The RGA holds regular creative art workshops and free art exhibitions throughout the year.

Many thanks to everyone who took part in all the very many elements of the Pop-Up. We had a brilliant time and thank you Reading Museum for having us.
