Christine Leadbetter

Born in Morecambe in 1957 Christine was one of the final students to study a foundation course in art at Storey Institute, Lancaster. This led to her degree from Liverpool Polytechnic in 1979. This led Christine into a career in commercial interior design. Christine was based in the Eden Valley in Cumbria for a number of years. In 2003 she returned to the Lancaster area. The landscape around Morecambe Bay and the Lune Valley often feature in her paintings. This particular set of paintings in the Journeys exhibition came about following a trip to India November 2019. “I took sketchbooks, notepads, pencils and pastels. During the day I made notes and took photos only having time to sketch on rooftops of our ‘homestays’ some evenings. Some of the drawings were later converted into paintings. However it was the notes and memories of things that stood out to me such as: Temples, mosques and monuments, street animals, tiny trading shacks - miles of them - with maybe one bare lightbulb. The flashes of neon from sarees and shirts contrasting against the often dark dusty surroundings - sparked much of the resulting work.”

The sculptor Geoffrey Clarke RA (born 1924) was chosen as one of the artists to produce work for Coventry Cathedral after the Second World War. A versatile artist he has worked in stained glass, silver and for his sculptural work, aluminium. 

Like the Spanish artist Miro, Clarke developed his own language of signs and symbols to convey his ideas. His interest in signs stems from his younger days at various art schools in the North West of England. Clarke spent time at both Preston and Manchester Schools of Art (1940-2).

Moving to London, his first solo show came at the Gimpel Fils gallery in Davies Street in 1952, he was now at the  Royal College of Art, later in 1952 he was exhibited in the Venice Biennale.

At the end of the 1960s his sculptures were to feature in a British Sculpture exhibition at the Tate Gallery, and later a similar one at the Royal Academy, he became an Academician in 1975. 

His work is to be found in the collections of;Tate Gallery, Arts Council Collection and the Victoria & Albert Museum, London.
