An exhibition of Paintings 29th Jan - 28th Feb 2021
About the Exhibition
33 Paintings inspired by the theme Release
Release is a collection of 33 Paintings created by artist Genevieve Leavold in response to words from other people.
The project is the third of a series of exhibitions - each inspired by the words of others.
The first - Desire Paths. Spoke of stories about finding, following or perhaps losing a desire.
The second - Legacy - related to the things we leave behind or are left to us.
This third show asks questions about the meaning and need for Release but as the year was 2020 it is also a response to the shared experience of the Covid19 Pandemic.
We all seek release from this experience and find ways of releasing ourselves.
And finally there is a need to release our existing understanding of the hierarchy of nature and recognise that we need to take better care of the environment.
Painted in oils, in the artists characteristic flowing brushwork, this collection marks a new era of works that flow outward from a central form - echoes of flowers and fireworks can be felt in this new series of paintings by Genevieve Leavold.
Each painting is build up in layers, the first layer see the removing of paint to create a skeleton, structured form which has texture to it. The next is a glaze of colour to build depth, then a third layer of glazed colour is worked into with the rich palette of colours.
