Clare Bryant’s most recent work of pen and watercolour pencil on Arches paper is called “Migration and other journeys.” It celebrates the committment of a newly married couple afloat in a wooden boat as stingrays make their annual migration beneath and all around them.
Please enjoy a sneak peek of this work below.
Love and Breakfast has ten days remaining. The exhibition concludes 3/7/11
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.
Curious Art celebrated the official opening of Clare Bryant’s solo exhibition Love and Breakfast today with the gathering of friends, colleagues, fellow artists and friendly strangers. Clare’s work is all new, having been completed between March and right up until today – Clare in situ finishing a piece called ‘Sweet Nothings.’
This solo is the culmination of 6 weeks of feverish work, pouring out onto the page. Many of the works used symbolism, which Clare only realised in retrospect! It can happen that way. Since her exhibition began and officially opened today, Clare has sold 2 pieces and was commissioned for one work. The reception to her work was overwhelmingly positive and effusive.
An elegant spread of chocolate cakes and champagne was enjoyed by everyone at the opening. The exhibition continues through to Sunday 3 July. Thank you to all who attended the opening and those continuing to encourage and support the artist.
