A collaborative exhibition by Alex McQuade and Fenella Beauchamp
This colourful collaborative exhibition features work inspired by popular
places to visit as well as rural surroundings.
Alex's artwork is inspired by places visited and the desire to record a
memory of somewhere special. The location is captured using a range of
techniques and mediums including layering of paint, ink, pastel and
adding texture with textile mediums, fabrics, paper, and embroidery (both
hand and free machine stitch). Alex will also be exhibiting her range of
textile gifts within the cabinets at Sock Gallery.
Fenella produces large canvases full of vibrancy and colour. Her two
recent series are mainly taken from nature; one featuring hanging game
painted in muted and tonal colours and the other, by contrast, a
herbaceous border - big, bold and highly decorative. She has built up an
extensive repertoire of work, portraying a fusion of images, colours and
forms, taken from the natural environment around her.
