Ex­hi­bi­tion of the month and gallery news

THE Real­lyveryn­ice Gallery was es­tab­lished to show­case dif­fer­ent styles and tech­niques in both 2D and 3D art in­clud­ing paint­ings, sculp­ture and ce­ram­ics as well as ap­peal­ing to dif­fer­ent tastes and bud­gets.

The gallery is par­tic­u­larly proud of its col­lec­tion of work from renowned ce­ram­i­cists Ostinelli and Pri­est. In­ter­na­tion­ally col­lectable, their work is con­sid­ered a ‘cross over’ – on the one hand is sculp­ture, with pieces cre­ated in clay and fired, on the other is paint­ing where the colour is ap­plied. Bring­ing both el­e­ments to­gether builds the char­ac­ter and in­di­vid­u­al­ity of each piece.

Other ce­ramic styles in­clude a choice of raku work – a tech­nique which in­volves re­mov­ing pot­tery from the kiln while at bright red heat and plac­ing it into con­tain­ers with com­bustible ma­te­ri­als. The re­sults in­clude stun­ning glaze ef­fects and crack­ling.

A new ar­rival at the gallery in­cludes Prue Pye’s life paint­ings. She con­cen­trates on ex­plor­ing the hu­man form us­ing broad strokes of colour or loosely sug­gested char­coal or graphite un­der or over oil or acrylic paint.

Richard Friend’s work has also proved par­tic­u­larly pop­u­lar. Work­ing on wa­ter­colour pa­per, Richard pre­pares the base with a layer of acrylic paint. This is then scratched away but forms the foun­da­tion to paint with acrylic ink pro­duc­ing the most dy­namic and vi­brant colours. Known for his in­ter­pre­ta­tion of ar­chi­tec­ture, Richard has pro­duced won­der­ful scenes of Bury St Ed­munds and Cam­bridge. He has re­cently con­cluded a com­mis­sion for the Syd­ney Har­bour Bridge.

Colour, vi­brancy and move­ment are key fea­tures of Garth Bay­ley’s art. Orig­i­nally from South Africa and now liv­ing in Scot­land, Garth ex­hibits some stun­ning large scale can­vases at the gallery. w
