Time­less fig­ures

Hertfordshire Life - - ART LIFE -

Fig­ures that ap­pear in a ‘time­less, dream-like world’ are the sub­ject of a solo ex­hi­bi­tion at St Al­bans’ Nude Tin Gallery. The free show fea­tures work by Julie Maginn who de­scribes her­self as a ‘day dreamer and night thinker’ and her lat­est work as ‘mod­ernistic por­trai­ture in an ex­pres­sion­ist style’.

The Harpen­den painter works mainly in oils us­ing a glaz­ing tech­nique to en­hance the colour of her paint­ings so they be­come richly hued – an ef­fect that shifts de­pend­ing on the light or po­si­tion of the viewer. Julie says the colours are dic­tated by the emo­tion she sees in the emerg­ing faces.
