Current Exhibition - Seren Bell & Zoe Taylor 2018

12/05/2018 to 02/06/2018

An exhibition of landcspaes and creatures with sculpture by Sallie Wakley.

Seren studied Fine Art at Exeter University before settling in Wales in the early 1980s. Her intricate pen and ink work could easily be described as ‘realism’ but the structure of her compositions give her paintings a somewhat unique surreal edge. She has become one of the longest standing exhibitors at the gallery which is testament to her talent in creating timeless paintings.

Zoë was born in the Midlands and is a self-taught artist who works from a small studio in Worcestershire. Whilst she has always painted, she has only started exhibiting in recent years and has gained a large following wherever she has shown her work. Her landscapes are inspired by many visits across Wales and down to South Pembrokeshire.

I put these two painters together for a joint show because they sit so well together on the wall. They both have very muted colour palettes and they both capture similar essences of the Welsh landscape and its weather but their approach to painting is like yin and yang. Sometimes two people with very detailed work can fight each other on the wall as can two with very low detail, expressive type work. These two painters are like complimentary opposites - Richard Braine
