In Skylark 2 at the moment, Trinidad Ball’s contemporary oil paintings are demanding the attention of most visitors. Her striking pieces of artwork are created through her exploration of colour, light and form, along with her attention to detail. The aubergines in one of her large paintings (included in her feature exhibition which runs until the 24th Aug) are so realistic you may need to stop yourself from reaching out to squeeze one. Trinidad will be at the gallery in the Oxo Tower on Thurs 14th, Wed 20th and Sun 24th Aug and will be glad to chat about her new work, inspired by memories of her birthplace, Spain.
Skylark 1 in Gabriel’s Wharf also has a very colourful, inspiring collection of art on show which enhances the fun and welcoming atmosphere in the gallery. Following on from Gill Hickman’s feature exhibition, Wilf Frost is the current featured artist unitl 17th Aug. Wilf creates intriguing mixed media canvases and paintings, inspired by his urban environments and the daily happenings encountered with family and friends.
As part of the SLAM Last Friday event on 29th Aug, Steve Yeats will be in Skylark Gallery 2 to discuss his new sculptures. Other artists will most likely be milling around too, happy to answer any queries you may have regarding the variety of artists in our galleries and their artwork on display.
