Show me the colour
An exhibition from Marshfield Screenprinters
This show is the first time that Sarah, Dominique Kate and Elena will have exhibited as a group. Whilst their styles and themes differ greatly they all share a passion for using colour and print and this exhibition will celebrate both. All the exhibited works will be produced using printing techniques and will vary in price from £50 – £500.
All four artists are printmakers and met at Marshfield Screen Print, a small print studio just outside of Bath to produce many of the prints shown here. Kate and Sarah currently exclusively use Screenprinting to realise their work. Dominique, a member of Bath Artist Printmakers, predominantly works with Linocuts and Elena uses a wide range of techniques alongside Screenprinting such as Lithography and Etching.
New Views on Familiar Places
A new exhibition by David Ringsell will be on show in the Royal United Hospitals’ West Gallery (Zone B) from 19th January 2019. The harmonious architecture of his home city Bath has inspired many recent paintings. He provides a contemporary take on classic architecture, with a craftsman-like attention to detail.
These dramatic compositions are realistic but retain a painterly quality. Sometimes areas of the painting are left unfinished to emphasise the contrast between reality and its representation.
The works are created in mixed media by combining acrylic paint, pen and pencil. The underlying pencil marks used to draw the composition remain visible in places. This adds a dynamic quality to the work that reveals its creation process.
David says “I aim to present a contemporary perspective on some familiar places. I often focus on the darker side of Bath architecture; peeling paint and stained stonework.”
