Water + Colour
- 13 February — 14 March 2014 *on now
Watercolour is often seen as a difficult and unpredictable medium, best suited to delicate landscape paintings, mainly due to its translucency and ability to portray light. Educated at some of the best art institutions in the world, from the Royal College of Art to the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, these artists have reworked this much-misunderstood medium to create surprising and spectacular contemporary artwork in a range of styles.
‘Water + Colour’ brings together accomplished and talented artists of all ages. American artists Kim McCarty, exhibitor in the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Laura Ball, who has work in the Denver Art Museum; Amy Park, an art scholar from the School of Art Institute of Chicago; and Emilie Clark, who won a residency at the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, come together with UK artists including; Peter Haslam-Fox, winner of the UK’s Young Artists Award; Barbara Nicholls, exhibitor in collections across London, Milan and Berlin; Freya Douglas-Morris, exhibitor in Italy, Spain and Germany and Stephanie Tuckwell, first prize winner for watercolours at the Royal West of England Academy for ‘Water + Colour’. Griffin Gallery is also delighted to be showing the spectacular abstract work of Alf Löhr, an established German artist based mainly in London and recently appointed as a Senior Fellow at the University of Wales Institute of Cardiff.
