Anuk says of her paintings; ‘the process which leads me to a finished painting often involves a series of discoveries. Although I decide upon the subject of the painting before I begin, I rarely know what the final result will be. I never draw the outline but compose the picture as I work which gives me a feeling of discovery. Shapes appear as I apply planes of colour which I exploit by painting layer upon layer and scrapping back to the colour underneath.’
Steven Tandy specialises in the painting of Still Life. He uses oil paint on small panels and paints in a realistic manner. He is much inspired by the great artists of the past, learning to love this humble genre from such great artists as Caravaggio, Chardin and Cezanne.
He works directly from life, attempting to convey the beauty of the subject matter by faithfully depicting what he sees. He delights in the rendering of detail and the meticulous method this necessitates.
This exhibition ‘A Riot of Colour’ is Carole Baker’s third at Ingleby Gallery. She is inspired by the Derbyshire landscape and beyond and the paintings are of places where she has worked on location ‘en plein air’ by so getting a real feel for the place so that her paintings are an emotional response, not a literal copy. A vision of uncompromising colour and beautiful landscapes, the scenes that Carole captures simply shimmer, awash with feeling. Art is a passionate and instinctive pursuit, and this certainly resonates with her.
