The Burntwood Group led by Maureen Sweeney is a group of artist friends who meet monthly in Maureen’s home studio. Project-led, we meet to discuss, share and bounce ideas off each other. We are all interested in working from things we’ve seen or experienced but portraying them in a way that is not too defined/descriptive or restrictive. We’ve worked in a variety of media including oil, acrylic and watercolour and in printing have included collotype, mono-print, etching, linocut and screen-printing. The Burntwood Group, originally started some 20 years ago, has exhibited together many times including several shows at Sprout Arts. Margo Random has joined us for the past year and this will be her first time showing her work with us.

Maureen Sweeney was born in London and studied Fine art and was awarded a post graduate year in printmaking at Wimbledon School of Art and Morley College, amongst her tutors were Maggie Hambling, Frank Auerbach and Prunella Clough. She taught Art and printmaking in secondary schools and adult education.

The city and her travels are a source of inspiration in her paintings and prints. The Thames which she crossed daily to school from Chelsea to Battersea and which was beside Battersea Power Station feature in her etching series “ River Trip” taken from drawings done on river boats travelling the Thames. Her monoprints, paintings and etchings of Battersea Power Station show her attachment to this great building. Travels in Britain and abroad captured in sketchbooks are translated into paintings using vibrant colour and fluid brushstrokes.

Margo has come to art following a career as a musician, songwriter and actress. Studying mainly at Putney School of Art, for the past nine years she has been passionate about making art and oil painting in particular. Margo has shown her work at Putney School of Art, winning the Oil Painting Prize at the 2016 summer show for ‘Orange Woman’. Margo has had solo exhibitions at Sprout Art Gallery, Urban Art Fair and Wandsworth Artists Open House and has shown her work at Jonaquest Art in Greenwich and Riverside Building in Hammersmith. Five of her ‘Tooting Bec’ paintings were acquired by London Transport Museum as a series of limited edition prints. Margo’s work encompasses landscape, still life and portraits with an abstract sensibility and love of colour derived from her travels, her London home and her origins in New York. ‘I love to paint with an element of surprise; an unusual composition, colour palette, subject or degree of abstraction.’ This is the first time Margo has shown her work with Burntwood Art Group and is pleased to be exhibiting her monoprints, woodcuts and linocuts inspired by her work with them.
