Scenic vistas, dynamic urban scenes, winding paths and tranquil seascapes are just a few of the alluring spaces explored in our LANDSCAPE; RURAL VS URBAN exhibition. Discovering nature’s beauty and looking at it as a liberating force, we are confronted with the contrast of picturesque streets and cities, which highlight detailed architectural studies and vibrant urban views.
With works from the Polish artist Dariusz Romanowski pushing the boundaries of painting, playing with perspective and recreating works in three dimensions, the audience is pulled into exploring the spaces. His bold and dynamic works allow us to experience the scenes. The established artist Maggy New who has had six solo shows as well as numerous group exhibitions, invites us to find quiet seascapes and meditative spaces, allowing us to be part of her multi-layered works and discovering the unseen. Maya Nival - Borgia and her works bring together the concept of the exhibition, exploring the contrast between the city and urban spaces with bright and striking paintings such as works of the metro underground system in Paris and creating juxtapositions with dream like scenarios and surreal seaside compositions.
The exhibition shows a collection of works inspired by rural and urban settings. In different mediums and styles, these artists create works that represent their passion, relationship, inspiration and interaction with their surroundings.
You are warmly invited to join us at the opening of LANDSCAPE; RURAL VS URBAN on Wednesday 4th March 6pm – 8:30pm at The Brick Lane Gallery – The Annexe.
