Upcoming Exhibition: ‘Weird Science’ By Gail Troth Paintings that Paint Themselves

Billion Year Old Carbon 121 x 76‘Billion Year Old Carbon’
Acrylic on Canvas
Dimensions: 47.5″ x 30″
£1,695 or pay through own art, pay just £169.50 over ten monthly installments (interest free)

George Thornton Art would like to cordially invite you to the opening of our upcoming exhibition of the fantastic Gail Troth

Exhibition: Saturday 29th March – Friday 4th March
Opening Reception: Saturday 29th March: Meet the artist 1pm – 4pm

‘Weird Science’ will be a show displaying the various sides of Troth, bringing together examples from six of the artists collections including works from the popular eternal landscape range. This reflective exhibition aims to share the scope and diversity of Troth’s work, showing just how much can be achieved using her unique and experimental painting technique.

In order to create her works, Troth adds a variety of thinners and alcohol to acrylic and oil paints changing the mass density of the paint. This mass is changed continuously during each paintings creation.

Using these altered paints she constructs her images using a drip paint technique: Dropping paint onto a fluid canvas, forming concentric circles as it hits the surface. As the paintings dry, they create a delicate pattern beyond manual dexterity, which have an intriguing effect on the canvas.

For those already familiar Troth’s work this will be a fantastic opportunity to meet the artist herself. Troth will in the gallery from 1pm until 4pm on Saturday 29th March. This will be rare chance to meet her as she does not usually choose to publicly attend her exhibitions. Don’t miss out.

New Artist: Sara-Jane Szikora

From Friday (14 March), The Gallery is proud to welcome the return of Sarah Jane Szikora and her ‘sweet-shop style’ art back to Nottingham.

Sarah-Jane is a partially sighted leading artist who’s quirky and niche work depicts imaginary worlds and outrageously exaggerated figures – in this case, enormously fat, rather benign-looking characters with tiny heads.

Sarah-Jane has been compared to the late great painter Beryl Cook, but her characters are more concerned with food – cream cakes, battenbergs, sugar mice and her iconic gingerbread men, who frequently feature in her compositions.

Sarah is a leading niche artist hugely recognisable for her quirky and humorous take on the human condition and everyday life.

I have known Sarah for many years, and her detail is incredible – however, it’s her humorous and sometimes sarcastic take on everything around us that I find most satisfying. I challenge even the sternest individual not to break into a smile when viewing her paintings.

She has a huge following and has been eagerly anticipated by the city’s art lovers so I’m really excited to be able to show her work in my gallery.

Szikora’s work has been displayed in galleries across the UK and overseas as well as in major London shows – and reproduced as limited edition prints, sculpture, Royal Worcester ceramic ware and much more.

Take a look at the Szikora’s work below and if you would like any further information or see close up images of the works if you can’t make it in gallery then please do not hesitate to contact myself or Daniel at the Gallery.

New Artists: Stephen Rautenbach

Stephen Rautenbach is a South African bronze sculptor, we first met a few years ago whilst stomping around Stellenbosch and he quickly got me into one of his studios. I immediately fell in love with his work, the immaculate detailing of each bronze piece is just mind blowing! He really brings the animals to life both in the way the sculptures look and feel, highly textured you can almost sense the movement of the animals coat and the roughness of the ground on which they stand.

  He has built up quite the reputation in South Africa, not just creating bronzing, but also teaching his skill to others. We are very excited to be have his works in Gallery and we hope you like it to.

Check out some of his pieces below and if you would like any further information please do not hesitate to contact myself or Daniel at the Gallery.

The Simple Power of Black and White

bw-art

‘The Milliner’s Workshop’ by Pablo Picasso

What is it about monochrome? It never seems to go out of fashion, it never ages and it never fails to capture the imagination.

One of the best exhibitions I ever had the pleasure of visiting was the ‘Picasso Black and White’ held at the Guggenheim in New York back in November 2012.  The work was displayed beautifully and with the building itself a gleaming white edifice, contrasting elegantly alongside Picasso’s creations.

The one thing I can recall most clearly was an assertion made by the artist that colour weakens, Pablo Picasso purged it from his work in order to highlight the formal structure and autonomy of form inherent in his art.

It is perhaps this simplicity and clarity that draws the viewer in, offering an element of creativity to the viewer that may not other wise exist. There is an untapped excitement in the ability to add colours and fill spaces with the mind creating your own subjective meaning to each piece that would otherwise be coloured in for you.

It would not be unfair to say that as a result black and white pieces tend to have a timeless appeal that allow them to adapt to a changing world around them. fitting into new moulds whilst still resonating with a notion of the moment in which they were created to capture.

 Take a peak at some of the black and white pieces we have in the Gallery below for a little inspiration.
