Awash with Colour

Tuesday morning watercolour group

6 - 11 October

Opening 8 October at 2pm

Watercolour can sometimes be the forgotten or ‘feared’ medium and that is so unfair … as watercolour has a magic and mystery that no other medium can match.

 

The translucency that comes with washes and the ‘happy accidents’ that can occur are addictive and keep us going.

 

We are a group that really feels more like a family and we come together on a Tuesday morning at the BDAS to chat, laugh and create under the guidance and tutorage of Kim Shannon and Wayne Davis. We don’t know how they put up with us sometimes … but it is a wonderful environment 

 

Please come do visit the exhibition and enjoy the journey with us.

 

Everyone is welcome!

The Subtle Mother
 

Artworks by Phillip Frankcombe

12 - 18 October

Opening 15 October at 1pm

Artist statement

An intimate title, which could bring a nearness,

a domestic, quiet but strong character who loves.

 

The intention here is to go wider into the creative feminine force, Mother Earth Herself.

This energy has historically been appreciated and worshipped through the Goddess; Shakti, Athens, Mother Mary/Madonna, Isis, Quan Yin, Holy Ghost and the Kundalini to name a few.

 

Most of these paintings are related to that aspect of God the Mother; the energy that is creativity itself, silent, but the power, The Subtle Mother.

 

My understanding of this comes from Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi who started Sahaja Yoga Meditation in 1970;

giving a way for humans to reveal within themselves this knowledge in a silent way.

 

The aim in these works is to mix different religions and cultural symbols to invoke a link with this inner but universal quality.  Using canvas, canvas boards, MDF, acrylic paints are the start, finishing in oils for strength of colour and detail.

Handmade stencils are mixed in with nature.

Varnish gives a gloss and a protective coating.
