Capturing Essence and Energy
Artizan are delighted to be welcoming Bristol based artist Danielle Neill to the gallery for the first time as we celebrate the ‘World in Landscape’ during July.
Her exhibition will feature recent works following a period of recovery from Long Covid. Plein Air sketches made on Coastal Walks are translated into larger works once back in the studio, Danielle works in acrylics, using a variety of tools and her hands to create movement and texture, with the resulting works, providing a glimpse of the World through her eyes, less representational and more a response to the energy and essence of a space that surrounds her.
‘I am attracted to bright bold colours and this becomes the main focal point for the paintings, often becoming more saturated and colourful. When I focus on layering up the colours rather than details and forms it creates a vibrant impressionable landscape.’
Danielle will be joined by Bea Brookes alongside in our front gallery and Ian Watson in our rear gallery with each of these artists also providing their personal interpretations of our World in Landscape.
