- Depictions of cities have been popular with both artist and audience for centuries. Virtually every movement in art has contained within it works that represent cities and arguably the iconography of these metropolises has been in no small part generated and reinforced by these representations. George Thornton Art would like to celebrate the city of Nottingham. Home to our gallery and in particular a very distinct building; The Council House. This beautiful high domed building stretches 200ft tall and is quintessentially a Nottingham landmark of the utmost distinction and can be seen from miles around. As infrastructure and modernization develops this building hasn’t changed and still is the focal point for the City Centre. The gallery is proud to represent artists that have taken time to pay homage to this building. Let me introduce the work of Alicia Dubnyckyj, Rachel Tighe and Donna Rumble – Smith.
- Alicia Dubnycykj is an exciting almost abstract artist who brings a sense of speed and vibrancy to the Nottingham City Centre giving great credence and space to the building itself.
- Rachel Tighe seemingly naïve representations at first glance look erratic but if you take time to study the detail you will soon find her structure of the Council House is much guided and with the courage to offer the sky above a light sea blue, it really makes this building and the surrounding offices stand out.
Donna Rumbe – Smith in order to create her works, stitched threads are intricately and meticulously woven into paper. Hours spent overlapping threads, folding paper to achieve the architectural form of the dome.
All three pieces are on display, available to view and purchase within our Nottingham space. Also, they are represented online.
