A Walk In Autumn

Runs from Friday 18th October until 23rd November 

To celebrate the change in seasons dot-art Gallery presents A Walk in Autumn, a new exhibition depicting autumnal landscapes in places that are continents apart. This showcase will feature paintings by Hazel Thomson and Thao Nguyen, and opens to the public on Friday 18th October.

Historically, autumn has been a time which signifies the end of a yearly cycle, prompting self-reflection and retrospection. Each artist has painted autumnal landscapes from their past and present, providing the viewer with riots of seasonal colour – splashes of ochre and deep orange – illuminating varying landscapes both in the UK and Vietnam. Long, atmospheric shadows and fallen leaves personify the cyclic natural world, each piece focusing more on mood and season rather than topography.

Thao Nguyen has created a series of new work for this show inspired by her childhood memories growing up in semi-rural Vietnam. These original acrylic and beeswax pieces celebrate the poeticism of autumn in Vietnam, the fleeting vibrancy and rhythm of nature accentuated by bold, orange hues. Her mixture of both landscape and townscape are painted entirely from memory, the low warm sunlight a recurring feature in her compositions.

For Wirral artist Hazel Thomson, the depths of British woodland are a regular subject matter. For this showcase, Hazel looks back to locations where she has lived or explored before, often painting plein air, or from her own photography. Varying from bright, crisp autumn mornings, to soft, dappled light cast by bare-branched trees, Hazel’s Liverpool and Cheshire compositions portray a striking visual reality. Her meticulous yet sensitive detail using oils, portrays the beautiful contrast between light and shade.

The exhibition runs from 18th October and continues until 23rd November, with a private view taking place on 17th October. All artwork is for sale.
