AboutFrom 30th June to the 4th August 2012, Nottingham based Artists Denise Western and Inge Tong will be exhibiting their new bodies of work at Tarpey Gallery.
The Djanogly Art Gallery and Tarpey Gallery, Castle Donington, are proud to announce Denise Weston's first solo exhibition in the region since 2006. Split across the two venues, this widely anticipated exhibition by the Nottinghambased painter includes confrontational portraits of children reflecting her interest in female identity and thearchiving of memory. Working with traditional mediums and by building up rich layers; the paintings act as visual metaphors
referencing the passage of time, memory and change. Weston will also be exhibiting a series of boxed collage works and sketchbooks that explore the nature of the representation of the human form as visual image.
Exhibiting alongside Weston, Inge Tong presents a new series titled âInto the Woods'. This exciting new series of work consists of multifaceted children's blocks that have endless
possibilities in the tales they tell. Each piece has an opening to a different story setting one image against another allowing the stories to merge together in a puzzle of colour and activity. Tong's work plays with shadows and colour using oil paint, inks and charcoal. Tong's art practice is influenced by the natural world; human and animal; their close environment and the stories and immediacy that relates to them.
This exhibition runs alongside Western's solo show at the Lakeside Arts Centre in Nottingham, which runs from 23rd June - 19th August. Exhibition runs from 30th June 4th August at Tarpey Gallery. 77 High Street, Castle Donigton, Leicestershire, De74 2pq.
