The Private view will be Friday 3rd of February 6.30pm until 8.30pm at Python Gallery, refreshments will be available.
The Exhibition is open to the public from Sat 4th of Feb until Friday 31st of March.
The exhibition is painting and drawing based, focusing on modern portraiture and figurative painting, exploring the life of the artist and how that intertwines with the lives of the viewer.
“Sirens of my relief” a title, which explains a lot about the whole exhibition, the act of painting, the exploration, each new piece created is another step towards relief for the artist. Just as so many of us search for whatever relief may mean to them, searching and seeking for true happiness, for inner peace, a soul mate, money, fame whatever it may be which the person believes will make their lives better.
Exploring past events, feelings, memories, grief or joy each painting reveals something of the artists life, each feminine portrait becomes a self portrait, and a reflection.
The viewer is invited to experience, not just look, but feel, to really explore how the work makes them feel.
In this poignant time when women all over the world are rising to make their voices heard, for so many reasons, not least for control over their own bodies, control over their own minds, this exhibition explores what is means to be a woman, what it means to the artist, who still works within an art world dominated by men. And what it means to the viewer.Private view of “Sirens of my relief”, a solo exhibition by Dianne Bowell.
