The Gallery Muse, 22 Spring Street, Brighton, BN1 3EF

In 2021, Faye Bridgwater won both Artist of the Year and Artist Open House of the Year. In 2022 she brings a new mesmerising collection of originals to Brighton’s newest art space The Gallery Muse.

Faye’s bright, bold, joyful paintings have been exhibited at Glyndebourne, The Saatchi Gallery, Mall Galleries as well as being the cover for Artwave 2021. She paints contemporary landscapes inspired by the South Downs and Sussex coastline. Her sweeping brush marks and the layering of paint capture the rolling hills and ever-changing sky. She initially starts with filling her eyes with images, often from her Facebook Group Brighton Skies. Once in her studio, the process becomes more intuitive: immersing herself in the paint and marks that are formed; it becomes meditative. Her work is emotive and uplifting. It connects the viewer to a moment in time with depth in the paint and pops of colours making your eyes travel around the canvas and drawing you in.

Although Faye is known for her landscapes, last year, she started to explore contemporary florals. Hooked in by their loud, proud colours, she filled her space with flowers collected from the local community. She spent a delightful time playing with the textures and forms of the petals and foliage.

In this week long exhibition, you can view and purchase her new originals and hand finished limited editions and chat to Faye about her inspiration.

Originally from Watford, having studied Fine Art in Sheffield, Faye now calls Brighton her home. She paints in her messy, splatted, chaotic studio which is at the bottom of her garden, just past the apple tree. Studio visits and collaborations are welcome :)

Massive thank you to Eve Ritchie.
