dot-art: A Walk in Autumn
Venue: dot-art Gallery
Dates: 18/10/2019 - 23/11/2019
To celebrate the change in seasons dot-art Gallery presents A Walk in Autumn, a new exhibition depicting autumnal landscapes in places that are continents apart. This double-bill showcase will feature paintings by Hazel Thomson and Thao Nguyen, and will be open to the public from Friday 18th October.
Join us in championing local artists and independent businesses as we showcase a selection of original artworks and limited edition fine art prints.
Featuring artists: Thao Nguyen and Hazel Thomson.
Thao Nguyen has created a series of new work for this show inspired by her childhood memories growing up in semi-rural Vietnam. These original acrylic and beeswax pieces celebrate the poeticism of an autumn in Vietnam, the fleeting vibrancy and rhythm of nature accentuated by bold, orange hues. Her mixture of both landscape and townscape are painted entirely from memory, the low warm sunlight a recurring feature in her compositions.
For Liverpool artist Hazel Thomson, the depths of British woodland are a regular subject matter. For this showcase, Hazel looks back to locations where she has lived or explored before, often painting plein air, or from her own photography. Varying from bright, crisp autumn mornings, to soft, dappled light cast by bare-branched trees, Hazel’s Liverpool and Cheshire compositions portray a striking visual reality. Her meticulous yet sensitive detail using oils, portrays the beautiful contrast between light and shade.
