News from the World

Elaine Goodwin

                                                                   Eventide II
Solo Exhibition of Elaine Goodwin
March 3 - March 24, 2015

From the artist:
This exhibition explores art as an act of love. In the work of the late 19th and early 20th Century, the ʻIntimisteʼ painters - Pierre Bonnard and Edouard Vuillard - used a broken-colour technique to capture the light and atmosphere of an intimate and fleeting moment. In this exhibition of new work - intimacy is explored in broken and low tones using the light=emitting materials of Ravenna glass and Venetian golds. The works are like confidences shared.
