Exhibition at Wisbech Museum features work by internationally acclaimed artist Suzanne Woolcott

AN exhibition has opened in Wisbech featuring work by internationally acclaimed artist Suzanne Woolcott.

In 2007 Karen harvey, director of arts organisation Atelier East, was curating an exhibition to raise money for Papworth Hospital and came across Glasgow-based Suzanne’s work on eBay.

Karen said: “I was totally struck by Suzanne’s work. I found it beautiful, eerie and intriguing, and I wanted to see more.”

After taking part in the charity exhibition, Karen encouraged Suzanne to hold her first ever solo exhibition and curated it for her at the Angles Theatre in Wisbech. Entitled ‘Red Apples’ it was a mix of digital and traditional painting and proved very popular.

In the five years that have passed Suzanne’s work, published under the name of ‘Gorjuss’, has gone on to be recognised worldwide with fan clubs across the globe, exhibitions in Hong Kong and New York and an international deal with SANTORO which has seen designs reproduced on many products.

Suzanne said of her work: “Gorjuss is about bringing beautiful, emotional art into everyone’s lives. I love to play with words, especially taking things literally, but I also think that love runs deep within all my art.”

The exhibition, entitled Once Upon A Time: Welcome to the World of Suzanne Woolcott, opened on June 26 and runs until July 21 at Wisbech Museum.
