East Anglian artist Surinder Warboys studied fine art and stained glass at Wimbledon and Newport schools of art before moving to Mellis in Suffolk in 1980. Since then she has built a considerable reputation with works included in two British Glass Biennales.

For the work in this exhibition, Warboys has focused on using the medieval technique of painting on glass in a contemporary style and scale. The ‘Loose Cattle’ series of works are a response to the Charolais cattle grazing on Mellis Common. Th e compositions arise as a result of the process: with each application of paint she is curious to see how events unfold. Washes of water and paint particles can remain in constant flux for indefinite periods until the image is deemed complete. The glass is then fired for permanent fusion between image and glass. There are chance marks and movements, reflecting the character of water. Warboys is fascinated by how the chemistry of seeing and memory, translates through movement and medium and takes shape, in this case, in these luminously contemplative forms.
