HAYLEY BUCHANAN IN THE SPOTLIGHT

Each month a different King Street Gallery artist is featured in our Spotlight Room. Throughout August painter Hayley Buchanan will be showing her work in a colourful and vibrant new exhibition.

Hayley told us: "I spent my childhood in rural South Wales and after studying art and design at Loughborough University I went on to have a fulfilling career teaching design and silversmithing. I now live back in South Wales and work as a professional artist.

“Influenced by impressionism, I try to bring such elements as Seurat's pointillism and van Gogh's dynamic skies into my paintings. The beauty that is right on my doorstep inspires me and I try to fill my paintings with vitality, and of course the colour I see. I have a passion for colour and portray my natural environment as a slightly surreal, vibrantly coloured, atmospheric world.

“Pointillism has always fascinated me. The way tiny marks of colour can be positioned in a painting to represent, sometimes very realistically, objects and scenes. I often use this technique to create the illusion of movement or to represent the subtle variations of tone seen in natural light. In many of my pictures I also, consciously, echo the pixilation of our digital world combining ideas from two different, yet strangely convergent themes: an area I intend to explore further in my future works!"

DEBBIE DUNBAR AND VALERIE PRICE-WEST IN THE CHATE ROOM

Running from Friday 9th to Thursday 29th August in the Chate Room, “For the Love of Horses... and of Other Things” brings together the work of ceramic sculptor Valerie Price-West and King Street Gallery painter Debbie Dunbar.

A love of horses originally drew Valerie and Debbie together as artists, and their work inhabits a space harmoniously, with paintings and sculptures working with and complementing each other. In this exhibition the artists draw the threads of a shared past into new directions.

Debbie’s paintings will present a wider subject range including exploration of the landscape, in particular green lanes and the mystery of where they may lead to.

Valerie’s ethereal, timeless sculptures hold their place in any setting, provoking reflection and empathy with other sentient beings and deeper consideration of the extraordinary history they share with us.

Don’t miss this stunning exhibition at King Street Gallery by two very treasured artists!
