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.

Please have a look at some of the featured work that will be on display above and below.

If you have any further questions or would like to register your interest in coming on Saturday 29th March please do not hesitate to contact the gallery.

Starting Tomorrow, The Darren Stevenson Exhibition, ‘The Calm Before the Storm’

Image

The Exhibition, starting tomorrow will run for one week until Friday 20th December. With a special appearance from the artist Stevenson between 1pm and 4pm.
A healthy serving of wine and cheese will be on offer (how could you resist?)

We all find inspiration in different places, people and objects and in honour of the exhibition, we thought it would be worthwhile saying a little about the great man who inspired Stevenson and has been a driving force behind his incredible artwork; J. M. W. Turner.

Perhaps best know for his work ‘The Fighting Temeraire’ he had a career that spanned half a century and is regarded by many to be one of the finest British artists to have lived.

Focusing mainly on the destructive forces of man and nature Turner is able to capture beautifully the changing nature of British life. Depicting contrasting scenes of the new industrial landscape against Britain’s past of sail boats and expansive green fields. Reflecting and adding to the efforts of other British Romantics working at the same time such as Wordsworth and Byron.

Like Turner, Stevenson has become entranced by the beauty of the open sea, primarily using coastal scenes in his work often using destructive imagery championed by Turner. A brilliant example of this in action is Stevenson’s ‘Storm’ as featured below.

To see ‘Storm’ and other amazing works, be sure to come along tomorrow or in the week and check out the full exhibit. For more information contact George or Daniel at The Gallery, or find us online.

This stunning original (now also available as a print) is created by painting text onto canvas. The size, colour and length of each word is carefully chosen in order to construct a lifelike image of Edward’s subject,in this instance; Bridget Bardot. The finished result is truly astonishing to see, from a far it could simply be taken on face value as a portrait but as you advance the image opens itself up to a whole new viewing experience. 

Would you believe 5,000 individual letters painted (astonishingly) 4 times each…. remarkable!

This wonderful piece has been 4 years in the making. Since being dreamt up by the artist this piece has been a labour of love.
The work is full of allegorical meaning and depsite its obviously religious connotations, it is only loosely based on the Christian image it conjures. Instead this piece is about the sharing of laughter, truth, humour, struggle, love and betrayal that is ever present within a community.
