My favourite piece is by Lucy Skuce who sketches a grid-like pencil drawing of furniture in a box room that is both figurative and abstract in its dislocation of shapes. This work alone makes a visit worthwhile.
This being a month of remembrance, it is an especially good opportunity to acknowledge artists in the community whose work may not readily come to the fore. Danny Nasirpour has a vibrant style which is unlikely to be hidden for long though - he exhibits a collection of eight pieces, some painted on the ephemeral and ubiquitous surface of brown wrapping paper. His dandelion flower is painted in a few fast brush strokes and is the pick of the bunch. He captures the howling energy of nature in another piece depicting an abstract landscape. Arguably it is of a brackish naval coastline, captured using the medium of black paint and monochrome charcoal on a blue grey background. This mixing of monochrome media on the paper to make a smooth even grey tone echoes the effect found in the first piece of the exhibition, a peering set of eyes drawn using many layers of depth.
An energised big green blob of a character is drawn by Wendy Williams and Denise Walsh designs a vibrant dynamic green pattern that would make a great take away print or a transfer onto a textile.
Each Artist has certainly shared their enthusiasm in their work, with a Liverpool football shirt making its way into an effervescent mixed media piece. Back of the net!
