Crossing Point – Wendy Dison

wendy-dison-100.jpgAnother very well attended viewing at Blackburne House this week as Wendy Dison’s exhibition ‘Crossing Place‘ was opened by Cairán Byrne, 1st Secretary at the Irish Embassy in London, and Roger Phillips of BBC Radio Merseyside.

Very good, evocative artwork this as Wendy skilfully and carefully combines analytic/printmaking and empathic/painter’s techniques.wendy-dison-230.jpg Wendy grew up in Liverpool and went to Art School here and these 19 new paintings explore her response to the long connection between Ireland and Liverpool and its role as a crossing place in the wider Irish diaspora.
Although these are paintings and some mixed media you can see she has a lot of experience in printmaking.
Well worth a visit to the main hall at Blackburne House.
