Local artists Anthony Birchwood and Ingrid Christie present a joint exhibition Disclosures at The Dukes in Lancaster this June and July.
In an exhibition bursting with colour, Birchwood and Christie’s workis displayed in the Lancaster theatre’s gallery and cafe bar and is free toview for the general public.
Anthony Birchwood started out as a landscape painter, inspired bythe shore at Hest Bank, just a stone’s throw from where he grew up. After six yearsof college at Eastbourne and Hull, he went on develop a more figurative stylewhich he explored when living and working in London, Los Angeles and Marbellaamongst other places. However, time has brought him full circle, and he is backpainting landscapes in the North West.
Anthony’s work is a reaction to the visual experience of landscapeand its transient relationship to light, weight of weather and temperature.Each painting tends to emerge from the mix of oil paint, pigments, resin andmedium in a spontaneous fashion.
Ingrid Christie graduatedwith first class honours in Fine Art from The University of Central Lancashirein the UK.
Ingrid has always favoredabstraction over representational painting and her work has gone through manystages of transitions, dead-ends and disasters. Despite these frustrations,each new day offers a sense of anticipation and promise, a feeling that somethingnew will reveal its-self through the repetition of painting.
Through her practice, sheis drawn to think of evolution; simple matter infinitely forming into organizedsystems that repeat, adapt and evolve.
Disclosures runs until July 27. If you are making a special trip to see it, call the Box Office on01524 598500 as sometimes the gallery is used for other activities.
