New dot-art Show Starts: Paul Shiers – Translucence and Saturation

New dot-art Show Starts Today – Paul Shiers – Translucence and Saturation, 15th March – 23rd April 2010 | Liverpool Art Lovers.

I keep meaning to mention the Liverpool Art Lovers blog. It’s run by the folk at dot-art so naturally devotes plenty of coverage to their own events but it’s a good read overall with news and reviews of other visual art happenings of interest to Liverpool art lovers.

dot-art’s Spring show features a new collection of abstract work by Wirral based painter Paul Shiers. These vibrant, dramatic and multi-layered works embrace a variety of media and techniques, exploiting the possibilities and qualities of acrylic paint but also introducing elements of enamel, oil and watercolour for specific effects.

It is Paul’s opinion that abstract art is the most free form of painting on canvas. Forming ideas for paintings from a variety of different sources, he enjoys the experimental side of painting using lots of different techniques to gain a satisfactory conclusion to a piece of work.
