New Work
Marilynne Barnes & Liz Priestley

29 August 2015 to 10 October 2015

Marilynne Barnes and Liz Priestley, although using different techniques and subject matter both are anchored in the style of the romantics. They both paint using a language of moods and emotions; Marilynne’s paintings convey the changing physicality and sexuality of the female form, and Liz’s outlining of a nostalgic landscape influenced by the likes of Turner and Constable, with a contemporary sensitivity.
