Waves and Horizons

Like so many people, when artist Claudia de Grandi moved to the Hastings area twelve years ago, she fell in love with the sea. She started painting small watercolours at her favourite swimming spot, but over the years her obsession with the sea – and the size of her paintings – has grown. Erica Smith went to visit her whilst she was preparing for her open studio event this weekend.

Three Miles West of Taranto (oil on canvas; 2018) by Kate Gritton

Soundings: in search of one father’s war

In March 2017, on a visit to Venice, artist Kate Gritton found herself wandering the corridors of the Jewish Museum. Turning a corner, she came face-to-face with a photograph of a group of people, one the spitting image of her father. The exhibition featured British soldiers in World War II during liberation, but as far as Kate knew, while her father had been in Italy, he hadn’t been stationed in Venice. Thus began a journey of discovery, the expression of which are the 23 paintings that form Soundings, a month-long exhibition, which opens on 29 May at the Hastings Arts Forum. Here, A. Vasudevan catches up with the artist.

The secret life of objects

Hastings has been Russell Dorey’s home for the last 20 years, and The Crown is his favourite pub: “The beers are interesting (not in a Belgian way) and the food is good.” He has chosen to celebrate The Crown – and Hastings – by painting a series of works tailored to a local crowd. Lucky us! His paintings are a feast for the eyes – the perfect complement to the good food and interesting beer. HOT’s Erica Smith meets the artist.
