Tony Bellars: Self-portrait with flowers

By richardhatfield |

Tony Bellars’ strong sense of design shows the influence of the North Norfolk coast where he lives at King’s Lynn (before attending Norwich School of Art to study graphic design in the 1960s he spent a year working in a boatyard) – his vivid colours are reminiscent of the painted canal barges from the broads or a saucy seaside postcard.

This new exhibition of quirky, cartoon-like painted constructions predominantly feature women or stereotypical male myths of women to be more precise and combine many elements of Tony’s past and current interests.

The simple naïve images have an echo of the Cornish artists such as Alfred Wallace but also hint back to the 1960s with references to Allen Jones, Shirley Craven and the Hull Traders and BIBA. The design influence resurfaces again with a more contemporary reference to the prints and fabric of Norfolk artist Angie Lewin.

Paul Digby: Paintings

By richardhatfield |

My practice consists of drawing, painting and sculpture. The main focus is capturing the figure’s movement in response to it’s emotions and the affect of it’s landscape. Contemporary Art should use an understanding of aesthetics and materials to manifest the individual’s experience of the environments we inhabit.
