Abstract Art 2014 - Group Show

Terry Duffy
Earlier this year Desmond Tutu invited Terry to show his ‘Victim, no resurrection’ painting in Cape Town, South Africa, to help mark the commemoration and celebrations marking 20 years since the end of Apartheid.  Work I have selected for this show includes a major painting which has just arrived back after being exhibited in Venice along with new work created in his London studio which has not previously been shown.

Lisa Cole Kronenburg
American artist but long-time resident of Liverpool Lisa is well known for her large canvasses but for this show she has now created a new collection of original abstract paintings on paper and canvas.  Lisa has also created a number of originals painted in oils on paper which are unframed and available for purchase at the Private View. 

Daniel John
A selection of studies which are part of an ongoing body of work, exploring a multi layered acrylic painting and drawing technique. Overlaid mark making and drawings are made with automatic and pre-historic drawing processes in mind. 

Matthew Bailey
After a sensational 2014 Graduation Show at Liverpool Hope I am delighted to be showing a collection of his original paintings in oils, some featuring string, plus an immersive interactive soundscape in the Black Gallery.

Roland Keogh
Originally from South Africa, Roland is now living in Liverpool and in this show I have selected a collection of his abstract landscapes and works which feature waves of colour and experiments of form and movement.

Lynette Kay
Originally from Merseyside Lynette’s paintings feature bold colours and lines in a varied palette which also features delicate details amongst the strong confident brushstrokes

Paul Bennett
International fine artist who has recently been shown in Singapore and London creates paintings which generate a sense of intimacy and isolation while leaving the subject open to interpretation.

Jefferson Waters
Having moved to Liverpool from London to establish his practice in the ‘North’ Jefferson has been busy creating a diverse body of work but for this show I have selected paintings from his ‘Small Window’ series which  feature lusciously applied oils onto board and canvas.

Barbara Ashby
A painting which has hung in the private collection for nearly 20 years this painting still conveys the vibrant colours and dynamism of the time when it was painted in Liverpool when the artist was living in the city.

Andy Brewin
When I first saw this work I was reminded of Gerhard Richter – the paintings are both Intricate and yet chaotic whist the application of paint and the use of marks communicate a sense of place and form yet remain ambiguous.

Felice Beilin
A series of four works which convey a sense of place through the use of colours and abstracted forms distinctly associated with the location.

Simon A Yorke
Dark and brooding the work is rich in colour and finely painted.

The work selected for the Abstract Art Show at the Corke Gallery has been chosen to illustrate a range of abstract art styles and approaches.  The artists selected include formally trained and internationally recognised artists as well as self-taught individuals who have developed their own practice through their love of the process of putting paint onto paper and canvas.  Abstract art explores the relationships of forms and colours and seeks to break away from traditional representation of physical objects. This show aims to present the visitor with a variety of work which will provide the viewer with a starting point from which they can start their journey of appreciating abstract art.
