Our Current Exhibition
By Alyson Telfer
“That’s very good. You should be an artist when you grow up”, the teacher said. I was five years old at the time and it struck me as a good idea. Upon leaving school I stuck with the plan and went to art school, though it was some time before I was eventually able to be an artist full time. On the way I have worked in museums, waited tables, poured pints, managed shops and been a primary school teacher.
I paint in textural layers, using mainly acrylic on panel. I scratch, sand, smear and splatter. I like the way you can build up thin layers in acrylic paint and inks with each layer affecting the next. I paint instances that catch my attention, small events that make you pause and savor the experience; hence the exhibition title ‘Sudden Moments’.
All work is for sale, including some limited edition framed and unframed prints.
Alyson’s exhibition runs until 17th June.
