Faded Lines and PAOS Friends at Stamford Arts Centre

 



In our practices art is always about mark making, but often we blur lines between what we see to be real and what we believe to be imaginary. By doing so we continuously create the illusion that leads to the magic of art.’ says Tony Nero about his latest exhibition at Stamford Arts Centre.

On show from the 23rd March to 5th April is a selection of Tony’s work from graphic drawings to original oil paintings and some of his wild-life pictures. 

From the 6th of April, Tony will be joined by some of his fellow artists who he has exhibited with in group exhibitions before:

Stacey-Ann Cole who makes Afro Caribbean centred art in a wide variety of media. She began exploring abstract art because of the freedom to concentrate on shape, line, colour and pattern, without necessarily feeling the need to reproduce a likeness of an object, landscape or person.  She uses watercolour paint as her main medium plus acrylic paint, gouache and ink, as it helps her to come up with fresh ideas and new work.  Stacey’s use of sketchbooks to play around in is also an important part of her process.

Paul Saunders is a meticulous photographer. Art photography is his main interest at the moment. As he completes each image, his enthusiasm for probing further in this direction increases. Many people may think that photography is a poor relation to ‘proper’ art but Paul states, ‘many hours over several weeks’ can be spent setting up a photo, and there can be no certainty of a successful outcome, there are many failures, but Paul says there is a great feeling of satisfaction when an idea come to fruition..

Paul says, ‘working with glass is especially difficult. However much it is cleaned before the image is taken it seems to attract any passing  dust. Working with glass and backgrounds with straight lines can also be a challenge. You will see the finished article in his exhibition but what you won’t see are the hours  spent getting everything as perfect as  possible. Paul’s restoration experience comes in very useful during the post processing of the image’
