John Darnell & Susanna Harris Hughes

Guildford Arts are presenting the work of two local artists: John Darnell and Susanna Harris Hughes

John Darnell

John began working life in commercial photography when it was ‘film’ & monochrome’. Then in 1963 he moved into television (also black & white in those days!). He spent over 40 years as a cameraman then director of programmes such as: Coronation Street, Casualty, Emmerdale and many others.

Photography has always remained a major interest and now he has returned to that way of making pictures. Mainly using digital cameras John also prints and frames his own work.

Susanna Harris Hughes, Woodcut Artist

Susanna Harris Hughes - Winter Tree
Susanna Harris Hughes – Winter Tree

Trees are an important part of Susanna’s visual iconography.   They symbolise the cycle of life and death.

The skeletons of deciduous winter trees bring a new promise of life in the spring as they burst into leaf which then develop to maturity during the summer before being shed again in the autumn.  At every stage in the trees’ cycle there is a beauty that she hopes that her woodcuts and drawings capture.
