New Work for Winter Exhibition: Mark Fearn

The winter exhibition is currently being hung in the gallery. It's a show that bursts with colour as soon as you walk in the door, making a very dramatic impact.
Mark Fearn's striking pieces have a bold and vibrant feel to them. Here we see square segments of paintings which are rectangular in shape. The effect is obvious from the outset, and beautifully textured.
Although these paintings are more abstract than the work we usually have in the gallery, they exhibit very well in Notti Lunghi (the Winter Exhibition), both completmenting and being complemented by the other art on show.
These 2 long pieces are exceptionally endearing. Very interesting work. I had my dunce's cap on earlier this week, and in an e-mail referred to Mark as Mike. Silly mistake, sorry Mark!
