Drying Out: acrylic 50cm X 40 cm by Liz Cleves

The Nature of Colour exhibition from abstract artist Liz Cleves

With at least one work inspired by Barbara Hepworth (as revealed by a sneaky peak at her Facebook page) abstract artist Liz Cleves exhibition The Nature of Colour is at The Woodhayes Gallery, Honiton, Devon.

With inspiration also from nature and colour, Liz’s work is that of the St Ives School.

Elements of landscape, interiors and pattern are integrated in compositions to produce work of developing complexity and depth, says her biography on the LanderGallery site.

She says (on her site): “I have for the last several years been finding my way from using watercolour and oils into the processes involved in using acrylics. The behaviour of acrylics perfectly suits the speed at which I currently work on abstracts.

“The value of each of the three media has been the unfolding of the ‘unexpected’, and the consequent insight into processes, and into the complexity and pleasure that accrues from them.

“I am fascinated by contrasts and changes of mood that occur at the interfaces between one shape and another.”
The Nature of Colour is at The Woodhayes Gallery, Honiton, Devon to October 16. Daily.
