DONOVAN – visits the United Arts Club

Last Thursday 6th April 2017, we had the pleasure of a visit from the music legend Donovan.

Donovan was a dinner guest of Noelle Campbell Sharpe at the United Arts Club  after the opening of a joint  exhibition of his and his grand daughter artist Coco Sian beautiful artwork at her Origin Gallery

After dinner we enjoyed an impromptu session when Donovan sang his version of ‘The Lake Isle of Innisfree’.  He  was moved to be singing in the room where his hero WB Yeats had held his farewell dinner to Ireland in 1939.

Donovan was then taken on a guided tour of the United Arts Club by Honorary Secretary Martin Lynch where he had the opportunity to view our wonderful art collection and also meet our chef Anthony O’Grady.

Carole Shubotham – Artist and United Arts Club Member – Painter and Sculptor

Carole Shubotham

Colour and texture define Carole’s work. Her pictures tell a multitude of tales, each one a result of the artist’s own free spirited style and the viewer’s idiosyncratic response to her work.

There’s a deep sensuality at play in Carole’s work. It’s there in the fluid lines of her life drawings, in her love of primal colours and in her unforced relationship with the rural landscapes that increasingly feature in her canvasses. If the mark of an artist is the extent to which his or her  work evokes a response from the viewer, then Carole Shubotham’s journey from painstaking draftswoman to provocative expressionist is one that’s been well worthwhile.

Look at her Burren landscapes and see the heathery grape, the autumnal gold and the peat brown hues spring to life; glance at her life drawings, particularly of the female form and relish her celebration of an essential, life-giving force. Carole’s work glories in the journey, not the destination: in that step into the unknown, where bold imagination holds sway and where, as Paddy Kavanaghreminded us, ‘life pours ordinary plenty’.

Artist Statement

I am especially drawn to using linocut and then scraperboard , a skill I developed through the tutoring of wood engraver Peter Reddick at Art College in Bristol.

My work is figurative, graphic and based on drawing.  Painting and drawing from life and the model is a core activity.

Scraperboard is a Sgraffito medium – the process I practice is the reverse from usual mark making.  I begin with a black board and gradually remove parts of it’s thin dark surface to reveal the white china clay beneath.  The result is a unique original piece, not a print.
