AboutA MOMENT IN TIME..
THE LINK GALLERY, WINCHESTER
April 9th 15th May 2009
ARTIST EVENT Saturday 18th April, 10-2pm
This exhibition is a unique opportunity to see the work of two artists who draw their inspiration from video and film. Following their success in London and New York, Caroline Hall and Julia Monteiro, both Masters graduates from Winchester, will be showing a selection of new paintings at the Link Gallery in the Spring. Both artists use video and film as a springboard to produce paintings that explore the boundaries between the moving image and the painted surface.
Caroline Hall has been selected as an âemerging' artist by DegreeArt.com and was a named finalist in the Chelsea International Fine Art Competition in New York last year. She held her first solo exhibition in London in November and has been selected to show work at the Oxo Tower next month. She will be showing new pixel paintings as well as works from her âvideo painting' series.
Award-winning painter Julia Monteiro has been exhibiting for 7 years in London and throughout the UK. Her cinematic paintings have attracted a wide audience and this exhibition at the Link Gallery will be the first time the complete series has been shown. By editing and selecting stills from contemporary European film Julia produces work which alludes to issues of time and space while retaining the integrity of the paint itself.
