An exhibition of paintings by Barbara King
An exhibition of paintings including figures and fireworks, shadows and reflections, flora and fauna. Everything but the Landscapes (though these too can be made available if required!).
The exhibition will be divided into sections including:
’SHADOW PATTERNS’ - paintings in oil demonstrating the intriguing shadows created by the projection of various light sources (torches, lamplight, sunlight) onto plants, chosen for their interesting shapes and/or decorative foliage and set against various backgrounds to add additional interest to the composition.
’REFLECTIONS’ - paintings of the reflections of boats on water in various conditions from turbulent to calm creating reversed and distorted images which, whilst representative of an actual view, border on the abstract. Like the shadow patterns, the subject creating the image (boat, plant, etc) features only as a peripheral object at the edge of the composition.
FIGURES - Life drawings in pastel and paintings in oil and watercolour celebrating dancers such as Morris, Clog, and Molly.
ANIMALS - Horses, cows, pigs and sheep make up a collection of animal studies many showing the characters of the animals, including curious Friesians, mucky pigs, black headed gulls and pink flamingos!
FIREWORKS - Spectacular firework explosions reflected on water inflaming and informing the surrounding harbour structures and floating boats.
STILL LIFE AND FOLIAGE - A sample of small works including fruits, vegetables and flowers in acrylic and watercolour. Large studies of Rhododendron woods carpeted in rose/violet petals and many new vibrant and textural creations based on Norfolk hedgerows.
The exhibition promises to be a colourful spectacle with sufficient subjects to please most visitors.
