Opening Hours: 10.30am-4.30pm
Lyme Regis artist Christine Allison is known locally and internationally for her huge, dynamic, contemporary paintings of eagles, owls and falcons. In her latest work Christine continues to draw inspiration from the natural world but executes her paintings in two very different ways, one realistic; the other abstracted. She portrays the bonds between domestic animals and their humans in realistic, sensitive and perceptive portraits in oil paint. In contrast, inspired by her garden, she creates curious, colourful, abstracted oil paintings, some tiny, some large, which at times resemble richly embroidered textiles or perhaps crazy dreams. In this exhibition Christine celebrates nature with skill, joy, light, a curious eye and a love of drawing and painting.
During the exhibition Christine is running a series of 6 workshops on themes extracted from her book ‘Drawing, techniques and tutorials for the complete beginner’ which was published last year and reprinted this year due to its success by The Guild of Master Craftsman Publications. Although the book is aimed at beginners, Christine is an experienced tutor and her workshops are suitable for all abilities.
