Hay Hill Galleryâ€™s 2015 exhibition schedule opens with a group show over two floors- a chance to experience the variety of creative talent they currently represent. Popular works previously featured have included Sveta Yavorskyâ€™s ethereal magi and winged leopards; Afshin Naghouniâ€™s dark-eyed women and resin veils; Sopho Chkhikvadzeâ€™s mnemonic gardens and faded swimming pools; Jones Keyworthâ€™s smoky London landscapes and glittering silver birches; Roger Aslinâ€™s mysterious film scenes painted in clean flat colours; Marek Dutkaâ€™s striking geometric shapes formed of bright shoals of fish; Robert Bissellâ€™s dancing bears and butterflies.
These artists are known for their aesthetic beauty, technical diversity and bold originality; there are no shrinking violets here. Subsequently, the group shows at Hay Hill Gallery demand focus and proper time to take it all in. Strong opinions are encouraged, no sitting on the fence- it is impossible to come away having seen nothing you absolutely hated or completely fell in love with. This cleverly curated exhibition showcases a wide range of paintings from the abstract to the hyper-real, promising to be an extraordinary feast for the senses.
