Angela Edwards – An Exhibition at Kellie Miller Arts Gallery, Brighton

              “My new exhibition at Kellie Miller Arts gallery starts this Saturday the 8th and runs until the 24th of July. My work will then be on display for a further four weeks. Very excited to see my work in such a lovely gallery in the centre of Brighton”. – Angela Edwards Angela Edwards paintings deal with people moving through spaces.  The main themes in her work are about travel and migration, with the ultimate eventual destination being home.   Angela is capturing the transition from the public space to the private.   The moment of time where people are travelling to their place of belonging where they can feel safety in ones own space.

Local Colour: AAC Summer Exhibition

What? No Adur Art Trail? This season’s south coast artfest is well under way: in May, Brighton & Hove Open Houses gave us the fab and funky experience we’ve come to expect; and Worthing will be consolidating its artistic renaissance with Artists Open Houses from mid-June to early July. What of Adur Art Trail? It’s the jewel in the crown, the cultured pearl between Brighton’s Bohemia and Worthing’s retro charm – but there’s no Trail this year. However, lovers of the Shoreham art scene won’t be disappointed with Adur Art Collective’s first Summer Exhibition at Skyway Gallery. More than 60 members of the collective are currently showing a selection of work in a variety of media: paintings, photographs, prints, sculpture, textiles, jewellery, paper craft, mosaic and film.

A Quest for Identity: Victor Pasmore at Pallant House Gallery

I didn’t know anything about Victor Pasmore before I went to the exhibition of his work currently on at Pallant House Gallery, although I was familiar with one of his paintings without knowing it was by him. During years of drooling over pictures in art books and magazines, I must have seen reproductions of his Coast of the Inland Sea, and it made a lasting impression on me: it’s a bold image of swirling lines, graphic marks and a sophisticated simplicity. It’s a lyrical abstract landscape, and I love it.      So, it was a bit of a shock to walk into the first gallery in this exhibition, and see Pasmore’s early paintings. The young Victor was obviously inspired by Sickert’s impressionistic scenes of everyday life, and the pastel drawings by Degas of women washing themselves. In 1937, Pasmo...Read More

A Painting A Day – An Experiment

The Experiment Recently (May 2017) I have started  “A painting A Day”. The reason for my starting a painting each day was because I always felt I should be practising and sketching  and I don’t like sketching, I like painting. I like a paint brush in my hand not a pencil. However everyday I felt I should be doing something if I wanted to be an artist and then tended not to do anything. Added to the fact that I couldn’t justify a full scale painting, time, money, would it sell, it had to be a masterpiece, what style etc. a million excuses, and if I did start I would usually put it off until the last minute. I needed motivation and not just for the odd exhibition. It was whilst looking for a way of speeding up the drying of oil paintings that I came across a YouTube site by Lenya...Read More

‘Catching the Eye’

Paintings by Andrew G. Forrest and Michael Windross In the Crypt Gallery, Seaford, 3 -11 June Two ex-choristers of St Paul’s Cathedral get together for a joint exhibition, sixty years on. In their differing syles and contrasting palettes, they will be showing landscapes, marinescapes, cityscapes, and more, from England, the Continent, and beyond. Both have had long careers in education, but Andrew (BA Sussex, MA London) has always been a practising artist – chiefly in acrylics and watercolours – and he has exhibited widely in East Sussex. He is resident art tutor at Atelier Lérignac, SW France and he chairs the society of Eastbourne Artists. Mike (MA Cambridge, PhD Louvain) only returned to painting (watercolours) when he retired from academia. He had his first one-man-show in Barrea (Ital...Read More

Winsor & Newton Liquin Mediums

For the aAc Summer Exhibition, and Old and New, I thought that I might revert to oils, something I haven’t used for several years. I decided on a theme for the exhibitions and proceeded to work on four seperate canvases. All was going well until I started to move things around, which I do a lot, and adding in details. Smeared paint, paint on heel of hand and shirt cuffs, despite using a support, and shortage of time. I realised I needed to speed up the drying time. So a Google search led me to Liquin. Having taken delivery yesterday then came the realisation that I had no idea how to actually use it. Being male I don’t RTFM however I did notice that my wife went to YouTube everytime she needed to know how to do something, she has just started doing mosaics. So next step was a s...Read More

Using Powertex to create mixed media artwork

Mixed Media with Powertex Powertex was developed as a liquid fabric hardener but can be used to create mixed media work including paintings, sculpture and jewellery. Wet Powertex can be sprayed or painted with bister (walnut ink) sprays and heated to form crackle effects. Stone effect combines the adhesion of the Powertex medium with Stone Art paper particles to build up convincing textures. Once poured, the window for use is about 1 hour, giving lots of time to manipulate fabric or collage. In a couple of hours it’s touch dry for spraying, painting, or varnishing. In a week, Powertex is fully hardened and in 3 weeks is weatherproof. The medium has changed my work and I’m exploring new techniques and experimenting with new materials. There will be Powertex demonstrations on Sat...Read More
