Gemma‘s artwork will be installed at The SPACE : A Zone of Art and Nature – ZAN from 27th January 2024. THE SPACE utilises a billboard on land next to St Leonards Warrior Square train station with artists projects developed through the collaboration of Christine Gist and José Gross.

The work will be available to be seen for a couple of months raising awareness of artists from Project Art Works locally. This piece by Gemma was selected by the Creative Team at Project Art Works for its vibrant colour in contrast to its sparse surroundings, especially in the winter months.

St Johns Rd, St Leonards-on Sea, TN37 6HP

Gemma uses joyful physical gesture when painting applying bright colours to surfaces with large, heavy
brushes. Movements may be in response to music or interactions with other artists. Gemma produces works on paper and canvases simultaneously and vocalises her responses with key phrases throughout the day.

Gemma sits cross legged on the floor and uses a large brush to add paint to paper.
