Until 4th March - “Growth” by Francie Heathfield. She says of the work … "Continuing with my love of using texture in my paintings I have recently been working on interpreting the growth of rust, and am very happy with the results. With my tree paintings I am exploring translating the texture of mosses, ferns etc that grow on the bark of different trees.”
4th - 25th March - Barry Driver - “Hot Cakes”. He says of the work, "Continuing my indulgence in abstract emotional expression, I offer a selection freshly baked delights alongside some favourite older treats, with the aim of tickling as many different taste-buds as possible".
25th March - 15th April - Anice Doel - “Visual Sensation”. She says of her work " I’m a self taught artist based in Nelson. My preferred medium is acrylic on canvas, and my style is heavily influenced by Pop Art. I have a love of bold vibrant colour and clean lines, which is evident in most of my work.
I enjoy painting local architecture, specifically places that are well known, but with a colourful twist. I also like challenging myself with buildings that are not usually considered aesthetically pleasing, by trying to make them so on canvas.
When I’m not painting buildings, I like to try my hand at painting plant life. Again, with a pop of colour that might not usually be logical in real life. I also am known to occasionally paint the random ideas that spring into my mind, sometimes related to wordplay, or just things I find amusing.
I hope you enjoy my work, to follow my progress and find out what I have coming up, you can find me on instagram @aniceartwork”.
