Held by Alan Trussler
An exhibition of figures, aviation and sport. In this exhibition the creation of beauty in a sense of movement with a two-dimensional picture space, required the use of a range of techniques. After all the paper cannot move, only the eye. I like to use the lines depicting the shape of a figure to direct you over the painting: hard versus soft edges, the use of angles and complementary colours all encouraging the eye to travel. Keeping contrast and detail near a focal point helps complete the journey.
