These 3 paintings incorporate images of art not mine, influential pieces which stood out for me at the time of painting. I took the curved window arch from Raphael’s The School of Athens, a strip of background landscape from Dali’s The persistence of memory and the oil lamp from Waterhouse’s The lady of Shalott. Asides from these more obvious snippets, I’ve let myself be influenced by other artists in the forms of colour combinations, formation of shapes and compositions.
Opens Thursday 7th May (6-7:30pm), on display to the public daily from 10-4:30 until 31st May
Rose Meyer, Anna Sharman and Megan Jeffries.
Ideas spring from things already seen, things already heard. The appropriation and re-use of these things; reformulated, become new artworks. Material influences are continuously stolen and incorporated covertly or unashamedly.
In this exhibition these three artists balance their work between; encompassing elements of the original and the stolen.
