John Farnham
John Farnham worked as assistant for Henry Moore until the sculptor’s death in 1986. John creates works in bronze, stainless steel and stone. He is particularly passionate about carving. It is the process of elimination and “listening” to the stone which excites him. Although he has a rough idea about what he wants to create, he lets himself be guided by the strata and colour of the stone. Most of the works in this exhibition are depicting human and animal forms and take their inspiration from foreign cultures, mythology and his imagination. He has widely exhibited in this country and abroad and his sculptures can be found in major collections. His latest commission was a large bronze for Pembroke College in Cambridge.

Lotte Farnham
Lotte Farnham is a painter and printmaker, born in Austria. Originally a translator she studied Fine Art as a mature student. She graduated from the University of Hertfordshire in 2002 and has since exhibited at regular intervals. Although her work is generally quite abstract, she likes to tell a story. The paintings shown in this exhibition mirror her emotional involvement with nature, particularly the woodland (she grew up on the edge of a large forest), as well as the human condition.
