THREE paintings by Addingham artist, Geraldine Thompson, will feature daily on the Big Screen in Bradford, throughout May and June.

It is part of the ‘Artist’s Choice’ presentation, organised by Bradford UNESCO City of Film in association with Silsden arts supporter, Colin Neville, who manages the Not Just Hockney website.

The bi-monthly presentations on the Big Screen present the work of six local professional artists, selected by them, at 12.30pm each day in Centenary Square.

Mr Neville said: “It’s a chance for the public to see art and craft work they might not otherwise encounter.

“These artists are also keeping alive the very strong art and craft tradition we have in locally. And it’s this sheer diversity of creative talent that will help us win the bid to become the City of Culture in 2025.

“To gain the City of Culture title would be a marvellous morale and pride boost to the district, as well as a great economic opportunity for the whole of the arts, culture and tourism industry locally. ‘

Geraldine Thompson said: “Colour and light - as a painter I have a particular interest in observing how colour is transformed by light to create an interconnectedness.

“I enjoy being out in the countryside in all weather, exploring and researching the natural environment, fully experiencing the light and moods of the changing atmosphere and times of day. I make drawings, watercolour studies or oil paintings often developed further in the studio.”

The other five artists featuring on the screen are Ian Beesley, a Bradford-born documentary photographer with an international reputation; also, Mussarat Rahman, Community artists and activist, and Qashif Masud, a wood artist and craftsman, both based in Bradford, along with the mixed-media painters Judy Sale and Caleb Lewis, both from the Keighley area.
