Tiverton artist showcases the beauty of winter at exhibition in Bickleigh
2:30pm Friday 27th September 2013 in News
A MULTIMEDIA exhibition has opened at Readearth Gallery in Bickleigh.
Tiverton artist Mark Abdey is showcasing a collection of his work created under the banner “Crossing the Dark Season.”
His series of paintings, drawings, prints and films explore landscapes during winter.
Mark said he has always found the winter to be the most productive time of year, drawing inspiration from the season’s muted palette of colours.
He added: “It is a quite time. Everything shuts down and as an artist it allows you to concentrate a bit more.
“I also find it a really inspirational time, because I paint landscapes I love the bare trees and the frost and the snow and because the sun never gets particularly high in the sky, the light is always lovely and that together with the unpredictable weather just combines to make an interesting time.
“It isn’t dull, I am not just talking about painting snow and ice, the exhibition is also about the colours of winter and that is something I wanted to highlight.”
The exhibition is running until October 5 in the Guest Gallery which is open from Wednesday to Saturday from 11am to 4pm. For more information click here.
