'I come to my garden...' - Phil Alder

'I come in to my garden...'

During October the Chate Room bursts into the colour, fluid ‘calligraphy’ of brushwork, and delicate textures of Phil Alder’s paintings in his solo show. A selection of recent abstract oil paintings and watercolours are all inspired by the pleasure of being in informal gardens and escaping from a busy world to be surrounded by flowers and foliage and light breezes. The paintings, which are best enjoyed as metaphors and sonnets in paint, are less a depiction of a garden but more the sensation of being in particular gardens at special times.

Phillip, who is now retired from full time work, has spent a career in teaching or managing arts in south west Wales, but has never stopped painting or showing his work. This will be Phillip’s farewell to the gallery for a period as he takes time away from the regular membership to concentrate on both creating a larger body of work expanding on the themes and techniques of this exhibition
