Point of Balance 2016 Gallery

Point of Balance, Oxfordshire ArtWeeks, 2016

The title of this show came from one piece where you will see the suggestion of a person as if balanced on one foot leaning backwards, but it is also concerned with other kinds of balance; light, colour, line, shape. The ‘Wave’ pieces explore these idea using the golden ratio or Fibonacci sequence as the motif. These elements are a natural obsession for artists, but on a deeper psychological level balance (harmony?) is what many of us are trying to nurture. It has been both a challenge and a privilege to draw directly from dance recently, to somehow preserve and convey the sense of movement and the sequence of the dance in a ‘still’ painting.

Exhibition of recent works

 

The wait is nearly over……….in May this year I am taking part in The Oxford ArtWeeks  Festival.

Come and enjoy images of Zoomorphs, myths, birds & trees evoked with diverse & delicate techniques from traditional oil on canvas, to intimate biro portraits, complex collographs and more abstract soulscapes. I rarely exhibit more than once every 3 years so don’t miss this rare opportunity to see my most recent work in this beautiful historic courtyard gallery setting. Originals, cards and reproductions will be available.
