These bas-relief paintings are well worth close inspection, the artist has cleverly constructed pieces that show the inspiration of the coasts and hills of his native Wales. There are some excellent drawings too.

Salvage: An Exhibition by Tony Roberts
at C.U.C. (Ground floor gallery)
10 December 2009 – 17 January 2010

Salvage is an  exhibition of bas-relief painting. The majority of this creative work has been produced utilizing discarded books, paper & card.  Flintshire artist Tony says this style came about after observing how companies discard printed material as if not valuing the research and work put into producing them.

Tony’s work has been described as a cross between sculpture & painting and reminiscent of ceramics.

All books used in his art work have been the “vision and inspiration of someone”, and are now given a “new dimension in a different format” where people can explore their previous purpose and meaning.
