Winter Blues Show

Our Winter Blues show features three artists – Melissa Kreisa, Alison Orchard and Zed Talijan. Meet the Artists at the gallery on Wednesday 9th November from 7.30pm. Melissa Kreisa After having a family and settling in the San Francisco Bay area of California she returned to her fine art roots and began experimenting again with paint on canvas. She became increasingly fascinated with the powerful ability of colour and texture to evoke emotion, tell a story, and to heal. She worked as a refugee advocate providing hospitality and support to newly arrived refugees in California. She found painting a critical tool to remain balanced, stay energized and find joy in this space. Alison Orchard Alison is excited by the very stuff of paint. She enjoys pushing the limits of the paint with responsive mark making, hoping to convey something of the energy that resonates between land and sea, light and air. “My aim is to create that ‘dynamic’ which is found when there is a fine balance between emerging abstraction, whilst maintaining subtle visual references to the seascape.” Alison works responsively with acrylic paint and mixed media on canvas or board, allowing the image to evolve through palette knife, brushstrokes and the added dimension of pencil and collage. Zed Talijan “In my work, I like to look for the point where abstracts and realities meet. In that undefined space is created a visual freedom that plays between different interpretations. That stillness is very often awakened with the movement of smoke, cloud and steam, which is a recognized motif in my work.” Make an enquiry about any of the work in this show.
