Corporate Art Event Night

16. The team photo. corporate art event night

Here’s the photo’s from a recent corporate art event night held in the exclusive Private Members Lounge in the Corn Stores, Reading on 11 March 2020. This was a Team Building Event organised by the office manager and her employees had no idea what it was about prior to the event. Most of the attendees had not painted since high school, none had ever painted using a knife before and it was certainly an afternoon of Fun, Art and Bubbles.

For this one, I had my original oil painting on display for reference, I also projected an image so that those at the back could see, I create the painting step by step as a live demonstration and I provide individual support to attendees as they progress.

My thanks to Tashana French and The Corn Stores for organising and hosting this corporate art event night and to my partner Sarah for her enthusiastic support throughout.

Art Events will resume following relaxation of the current lockdown…

Starving Artist, burning the midnight oil and candle at both ends... The style of my artwork is modern, yet classical. Predominantly figurative, the tendency of my artwork is towards carefully composed anonymity, capturing the emotions and self belief of the subject, rather than characteristic individual representation. The creation of figurative artwork not only depicts the emotions of the artist, it transforms the artist's emotions. Art should be proudly displayed, carefully scrutinized, and in order to benefit to the fullest extent possible, it should be understood from the perspective of its creator - the artist. My figurative artwork is sensual and my ballerinas and dancers are passionate, moody and emotional. My preferred lighting, shading and contrast are dramatic. I simply adore light and am fascinated with its arguably undue influence on any subject. I delve extensively between the extremes of highlights and lowlights in my artwork in a chiaroscuro technique, occasionally minimalist, often leaving the viewer's mind to complete the picture and to add depth. I always strive to create an atmosphere in whatever I produce, at the highest possible quality and using either a knife or brush and a very limited colour palette of oil paint or pastels, usually alla prima, mixing and blending only on the canvas!
