I like to work in a series where the explorations evolve through experimentation, play and accident, and I often revisit and rework aspects previously encountered. This maximizes the possibilities of the theme and the sequences are mostly as important as any single piece.
The most recent paintings are predominantly on a smallish, intimate scale which enables a faster way of working where more alternatives can be developed in the time frame. The colour is deliberately none naturalistic mostly using strong hues to heighten contrasts.
Evolving from small sketchbook preparatory studies the works are more concerned with figure/ground configurations than with literal representation.
Thin Places are places where the veil between the temporal and the spiritual worlds are tissue-thin, and in such places, we may be able to experience glimpses of the spiritual dimension.
Artists Gill Ayre and Caryl Beach explore what this means to them in their work. Always rooted in their experience of landscape, their work touches on these shifts in perception, where mundanity gives way to mystery.
We have new and exciting work installed at the gallery.
Our gallery has a diverse range of work on display from our artists. The exhibition is open from Tuesday July 24th, and includes paintings, drawings, mixed media, original prints, photography, ceramics, glass, sculpture, jewellery, and much more. We also have original artists cards for any occasion.
The gallery is open Tuesday to Saturday 10am – 5pm.
