Artist's Talk also being held on Saturday 18th January @ 2.00pm

In the words of the artist, referring to the central work of this exhibition...

"This looks, to the casual viewer, as if it was created accidentally but in fact every detail was contrived and manipulated to form, what is believed to be, a perfect example of the 'Rules of Nature' applied and in concord with the sound of a "base note'.

This is an Exhibition that ranges between serious deep art and light-hearted almost comical art. It moves between Realism to Abstraction and Non-Objective Art."
