An artistic use for modern technology is being much admired at Caistor Arts and Heritage Centre.

This month’s featured artist is Avril Morris, who has used digital technology to create her exhibition.

“This exhibition was meant to be a retrospective ‘pastels and paint’ but having been presented with an iPad and stylus as a Christmas gift after visiting the Royal Academy exhibition of David Hockney’s work, the result is around the walls,” she said.

“Today’s digital technology has revolutionised our lives and presented the opportunity for us to do and view things in new and exciting ways.

“Whether the work produced is worthy of the effort needed to overcome the frustrations and navigate the ‘learning curve’ is for the artist to decide and the viewer to contemplate.”

Avril studied ceramics and sculpture at Leeds College of Art and taught at various schools in Lincolnshire, whilst working with her husband David in their ceramics studio workshop.

Eventually her interest in ceramics was overtaken by a long-standing desire to paint which she has been doing full time since her retirement and she has exhibited widely in this country and New York.

The exhibition continues until September 29.
