In All Seasons March 06 2015
Our new Exhibition has now been finalised.......we have lots of new works of art in the gallery - original paintings and prints, ceramics, jewellery, sculpture and craft items at affordable prices by both emerging and established artists.
Featured on our invitation is the work of Italian-born artist Giuliana Lazzerini. Giuliana was born in Seravezza near Pietrasanta in Tuscany. She studied at the Instituto D’Arte Stagio Stagi in Pietrasanta, gaining a Master of Arts Diploma. This was followed by a further four years studying painting at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Carrara.
The Tuscan landscape and childhood memories still bear a strong influence upon Giuliana’s current work. In an earlier statement she describes her first encounters with art in Italy as a child in her father’s mosaic studio. She refers to the “translucency of the mosaic fragment” and her “fascination with the vibrancy of colour” from the juxtapositioning of the pieces. These early perceptions, several years on, provide a language and a vocabulary for her pictures in terms of colour, surface, scale of which she uses in the construction of her tapestry-like, interlocking, angular-surfaced village landscapes.
Giuliana divides her time between painting (oils, acrylics and watercolours) and printmaking and we are pleased to introduce new paintings and prints as part of our Spring show.
