Picture of the Month

July 2018
by Helen Lunn

Discovery 10
mixed media
10 x 15cm


I picked out 'Discovery 10' because this work really does reflect Helen's scientific background and I feel like I am looking down a telescope at an exciting new mixture, the results of which no one could predict, and which are all very much alive!

In addition to this element of unpredictability, I encounter new colours which are not readily available in the average palette, like bluey emerald greens and rather exotic reds and purples. She also skilfully manages to evolve a three dimensional element within which you could imagine vast seas or cavernous landscapes. These effects are all brought about by her bold use of multi mediums which let the imagination soar. I enjoy her experimental attitude to creativity.


Chosen from our Online Art Gallery by Adeliza Mole

Museum Highlights

High Bridge

If you're taking a walk through Reading this summer, perhaps making your way to the Abbey Quarter to look at the now re-opened ruins, go via Duke Street and you’ll come across this view (well you have to take a few steps to one side!). It hasn’t changed much. Read about this Museum Highlight and find out more about the artist and his link with the Abbey.
