View Points Exhibition Extended
My joint exhibition with fellow artists Penny Ramalho, Ingrid McLaughlin and Amelia Stewart in Flowerfield Arts Centre, Portstewart has now closed. The exhibition was to run from 2-29 August but Flowerfield requested that we extend it to 20 September.
Seeing is believing. But seeing is not perceiving. What we take in is so influenced by our attitudes, beliefs and imagination that no two observers will describe what they see in the same way.
In my previous exhibitions, nature provided inspiration. In a sense, this one is no different. This time, though, I’ve blended colour and pattern seen in the natural world with my own interior landscape to create fantastical images.
