‘Passing Through,’ a new exhibition showcasing paintings by Pembrokeshire artist Charlotte Cortazzi, accompanied by poems by Sue Kullai, and sculptures by Robert Jakes and Pauline Le Britton, opens at the Joanna Field Gallery at the Torch Theatre, on Friday (August 2).

This inspiration for the exhibition came about while Charlotte and Sue were walking the Camino from Porto to Santiago last autumn.

The artwork and poems are a contemplation of life’s journey.

Charlotte’s vibrant landscapes explore the idea of pathways and the sense of wonder in the natural world.

She said: “I like the idea that a painting expresses my feelings for a place that is a glimpse of a moment in time as the landscape and world around us is always changing. The paintings are also a contemplation of the nature of life’s journey, we are just ‘passing through.’”

Robert Jakes’s sculptures and “chainsaw whittlings” are metaphors for humanity’s place in the world and play with scale to reflect our small part in the big scheme of things.

Pauline Le Britton’s work explores objects that have become powerful charms through the passage of time, love and loss. She tries to express the intangible processes that we experience in life.

Sue Kullai’s poems are all inspired by travel and the yearning to travel.

‘Passing Through’ runs from Friday, August 2, to Saturday, August 31, and can be viewed at all times when the theatre and adjoining café is open.
