New exhibition coming soon to the Peacock Gallery
4 – 23 November 2017
Artist Martin Creasey is showing a selection of oil, acrylic and watercolour landscapes, drawing on his many years of experience as a Graphic Designer, which has helped to bring an understanding of colour, shape and form to his paintings. In particular, his watercolour paintings often show great vibrancy of colour, with strong use of greens, yellows and reds, whilst his acrylic paintings show attention to detail, in both composition and technique.
Exhibition now on until 12 October
23 Sept – 12 Oct 2017
Reading based artist Michael Garaway is showing new paintings in this exhibition that presents abstract views of Reading combined with geometry and pattern.
Wanting to inject new ideas into his work, Michael travelled to various points encircling Reading to take photographs that have fed into the paintings on show. The “Blade” building features in a number of the resulting images, as do other familiar local sites such as the prison and the Oracle.
The acrylic paintings themselves are painstakingly produced using grids and graphic instruments that highlight Michael’s interest in geometrical composition, and his sensitivity to surface, tone and colour.
Michael has made and exhibited his work since the 1980’s, but has also worked as a graphic artist, education technician, and as lecturer and course leader for art, design and multimedia courses at a number of institutions, including Reading College and the University of West London.
