Nine days into Clare Bryant’s solo exhibition finds her work reaching an enthusuastic audience. The work which she was completing during her official opening as a kind of installation, has been completed, matted and framed under glass.
It is of two figures, male and female, with the male coming in from above seen to be whispering sweet nothings into the ear of his love, and mother of his child, embryo seen in utero. The woman appears blissfully content and full of love. This is a very happy art work, with warm primary colours, and a leap away from Clare’s signature darker works.
The work is done in pen and watercolour pencil on 600gsm Arches paper with deckled edging. The paper has a beautiful texture and was inspiring to work on. The paper really loves a watercolour wash.
Clare’s exhibition “Love and Breakfast” at Curious Art gallery runs until Sunday 3 July 2011.
