The Gallery of Bevere's  FALLEN WALL   looks just as interesting

Landscapes in Oils by Linda Judkins

 The Gallery at Bevere
  is delighted to stage  Linda Judkin's  Solo Exhibition  of her  paintings in the SPACE UPSTAIRS throughout November

She is a Worcester based artist.  She is inspired by nature and by the often rapidly altering quality of light upon landscape.  She lives at the southern most edge of the city overlooking meadows near the River Teme and so is constantly aware of the varying moods of nature. 

She has been exhibiting her work  with us at Bevere for six years.

Linda was an adult art student at Malvern Hills College for more than ten years where she studied painting and drawing of human figure, still life and landscape.

The eight paintings in this exhibition are some of Linda's recent smaller landscape works in oils.  They form part of a larger body of work which she depicts the transitory in nature through colour, tone, texture and composition.

She is endlessly fascinated by the mixing of hues on her palette that reflect the subtly of tonal and colour variation that she sees in atmospheric effects,  and the paintings explore spatial depths within them.

Linda says 
In  my compositions I aim to harness and organise the fleeting elements of  'atmosphere'
inherent in the subject matter.

 I use oil paint texture to  transform the transient into something more substantial which conveys the significance of the passing moment.

POT OF THE MONTH - November 2009

CHRISTY KEENEY'S -   'Portrait of an Artist'

This month the Gallery's the pot of the month is a Christy Keeney sculpture. Christy is one of the distinctive artists in clay whose work is instantly recognised by so many ceramic enthusiasts. The deconstruction of his subjects is a unique feature of his work, which in his own words, he sees as 3D painting.

Whilst it is possible to detect some of his influences Christy’s voice is very much his own.  I like this piece because it has so many of the distinctive features of his style - the head, the subtle and understated use of colour, and the ingenious drawing together of the elements of the subject to form a satisfying whole.

Each of his pieces need space - this one no less - where the character of the work can be fully expressed.  Christy attempts to express the human spirit in all its forms and the popularity of his work suggests that his ambition resonates with many of us.
