July 31 @ 8:00 am - August 7 @ 4:00 pm
A group exhibition by May Cheung Grant and Paul Hillary
May paints with acrylics and uses mixed media and inks for various projects. Landscapes, patterns, texture, and abstract art all feature in her work.
May likes to paint with vibrant colours so that the end result is full of energy and is uplifting to the viewer. She will use any colour pallet depending on how she feels on the day, as long as the colours have harmony. On occasion neon colours play a role in her paintings, incorporating past influences from the Punk era. She likes to make a bold statement. Her paintings are dynamic and vibrant, capturing viewers’ interest through emotions and feelings. Her work is exciting, instinctive, and intuitive with a positive vibe.
Paul expresses land and seascapes through paint and canvas as well as creating pure abstract artworks, exploring textures, colour and shapes.
Originating from the Lake District he is constantly fired up by landscape and it’s changing moods. In recent years he hasn’t resisted the urge to interpret his vision of scapes and the outdoors less literally and more with texture, and abstracted suggestive shapes, exploring more the feel of a place. Many visits to the Hebrides, Channel Islands and more distant shores is a welcome source of inspiration for his artworks.
