23rd September to 16th October
The Lavit Gallery is delighted to present a solo exhibition by Angela Fewer.
Angela Fewer only paints subjects she knows very well. Over the past thirty years Angela has spent every summer on Heir Island in Roaring Water Bay in West Cork She has a small studio there. The island is of special interest with its inlets, cliffs and shorelines.
However during “ Lockdown “ and restricted to 5 klm from home, the situation changed. Angela lives in Glanmire, a wooded valley on the outskirts of Cork City. Daily she watched the light and shadow filter through the trees that surround the house. This reflected the mixed emotions generated by the strangeness of lockdown.
So the exhibition consists of two bodies of work – sea and shore, shadows and trees,
A constant is the wish to create paintings that are on the cusp of representation and abstraction. The prime motivation is to solve the formal qualities of the painting itself. This is a journey of exploration and adventure – a journey into the unknown.
Opening Night– 23rd September
