The hard-working Wendy J Levy Contemporary Art gallery in Didsbury has a good looking show coming up.
It’s an exhibition that brings together two artists, Derek Bradbury and Alan Joyce. Both artists have exhibited before with the gallery and you can see why they are popular.
Derek Bradbury’s work is inspired by the effects of light, colour and pattern of the landscape. He is especially interested in the quality of light to be found in Italy and the South of France. Derek’s work in oils uses light and colour to attempt to get to the heart of a landscape.
Alan Joyce’s paintings feature a variety of subject matter including coastal and sea scenes, landscape and urban scapes. He uses a range of different media, primarily oils and oil pastels, to produce a variety of effects from intense colours to soft details.
The appeal of both the artist’s work lies in their immediacy. This is direct, almost unsophisticated, painting that while unchallenging in subject matter is easy on the eye and good for creating a mood of tranquillity - for slowing the emotions.
The exhibition runs from 10th September until 1st October 2010, open: Tuesday to Saturday 10am to 5pm.
Wendy J Levy Contemporary Art Ltd is at 17 Warburton Street, Didsbury, Manchester M20 6WA
