Mayor of Northampton opens Picasso-style art exhibition at City Gallery
The Mayor of Northampton has opened a Picasso-influenced art exhibition created by an upcoming artist from Northampton.
Dennis Meredith was on hand to open the exhibition by Northampton artist Bronwin Abas. The artist’s contemporary collections are currently on display at the Panel Gallery in Wellingborough Road.
Bright and colorful contemporary paintings depicting the faces of women and girls were influenced by the works of abstract artists such as Picasso, Salvador Dali and Franz Marc.
Two of Bronwin’s collections are currently on display: the Egyptian Collection and the Serendipity Collection.
Bronwin said: “In the Egyptian collection the paintings depict women from wealthy families with the choice of classical colors and shapes around the faces symbolizing the economic forces of the market in their surroundings. In the Innocence collection the faces are painted rather in a Picasso style with black outlines and in a surreal and abstract way.
“These paintings are about the social beginnings of young girls coming out into society, managing their money, having a new job and flirting for the first time. They are very optimistic and come from a girl’s point of view and their enthusiasm is depicted in the paintings. colors and shapes around them.
Bronwin, who lives in Northampton, has painted all her life, but has been painting professionally for six years.
Dennis Meredith added, “Many people attended the exhibition and commented on the paintings. Painted in bright, contemporary colors in an abstract style, the collection is worth seeing.
The paintings will be exhibited until Friday, October 29.
