Polly Merredew

Polly is a Coventry based visual artist and knows Solihull very well after growing up here and studying at Birmingham Institute of Art and Design. Since graduating in 2003 she has exhibited extensively across the Midlands and her work has been purchased by both corporate and private clients. She balances her art practice alongside raising her 3 lively children.

Polly primarily works as a painter and her work is a detailed exploration into colour, using complex and often confusing arrangements.

The geometric shape has an order and regularity that can easily be disrupted with the addition of colour, thereby creating illusions of spatial depth and movement on a flat plane. Polly is continually investigating this within her paintings.
