A Retrospective at The Rose Theatre and Art Gallery at Angel Manor

'B' has always been fascinated since her 'virtual' birth in 2009 with the wonderfully changing atmospheres and landscapes of the virtual world she inhabits.

Brought up by artistic parents who encompassed the Fine Arts, 'B' has always used her eye in different ‘ways of seeing’, looking beyond the surface of things, often using the memories of places she visited, the unexpected and the unusual found there in conjuring up startling new images associated from her dreams or memories, giving the viewer an element of surprise of strange, enigmatic and unexpected juxtapositions.

She uses techniques very similar to an oil painter and the art of glazing. Most art pieces have between 40 to 50 layers each laced with delicate textural effects which she creates herself. Some of these are 'scraped off' in the process of exploring themes, ideas, anatomical corrections, light, shadow and mood are added or discarded depending on the feel of the moment and their relevance to the art piece.

The virtual world is a wonderful platform for this form of self expression as the amazing creators, builders and artists there allow her free rein to explore a limitless range of previously neglected associations, in the omnipotence of dream, in the seemingly random & disinterested play of her thoughtforms. A world of atmospheres, moods and ideas in her art which she often refers to as being immersed.

In addition to being constantly inspired by the creations within this beautiful world, 'B' finds that her partner’s music; Quarkstar, (soundcloud.com/quarkstar); has a huge, emotional driving force behind her art also. The titles accompanying the artworks each reflects the name of a piece of music or part of a lyric.

Being a very rare art exhibitionist, she is very excited to have been offered a chance to re-exhibit at The Rose Art Gallery and has a very personal and reflective collection of work that focuses on her preoccupations with lonely places, her work immerses the viewer into a world of strange absences, an eerie unsettling sense of something not quite right. Each piece in this collection being a very personal reflection of her inner thoughts.

Dedicated to the memory of Mum & Dad who sadly both passed not so long ago
