Art on show in Brighton and Hove & East and West Sussex

Sublime painterly art at FESTIVAL, Cameron Contemporary Art, Hove :: 24 Apr 2015

24 April 2015. Festival, the new show at Cameron Contemporary Art, opened in Hove last night, a prelude to the Artist Open Houses and Brighton Festival which will start in May. Sussex Artbeat visited the opening. Marta Ptaszkiewicz made the following photo review, and Russell Honeyman made the commentary.

Festival boasts new work by some fine painters we have come to love at Cameron, and some new artists. The common theme is a love of traditional skills in painting colour and light, put together in a contemporary form. Some beautiful examples at this show include Kirsty Withers’ “Perfectly Picked” blues on a complementary orange ground, Kevin Hendley’s stark chiascuro of a man in front of a brilliant white disc that may be the moon or may be time running away from him, and Jennifer Anderson’s “Shroud”, where similar – toned complementary pale pinks and greens give the most subtle form to the lips of a woman, painted on brass plate.

Also on show is intriguing 3D work on display in ceramic and brass.

See below for photos of the show. Unfortunately, online pictures cannot capture the subtlety of the colours in the painting, so please do go view the show yourself. It’s open to 25 May 2015.
