Getting ready for our Annual Summer Exhibition

Over the last year Eric has spent a great deal of time painting out doors or ‘Plein Air painting’ as they say, capturing every aspect of small town life in the Eastern Cape. I would say that he has seen the light as is evident in his masterful use of colour so playfully and sensitively expressed in this new body of work. Over the next few weeks we will be uploading all the new work that will be on exhibit to the website. We hope that you will join us for a glass of wine and conversation on the opening days to see the work in person and meet the artists. The exhibition will feature the latest work by Eric Oswald Eatwell, Lynne-Marie Eatwell and Mags Eatwell.

Working on Horses

Half Scale replica by Lynne-Marie Eatwell

Half Scale replica by Lynne-Marie Eatwell

I know I have been quiet the past few months but I have a good reason, I have been working on a series of anatomical studies of horses and have recently completed this half scale replica of a horse made from plaster and steal. I hope one day to have it cast in bronze. I have also been working on a quarter scale version which also shows the muscles on the one side as well as several other sculptures of horses not to mention new paintings. Slowly but surly I am building up a collection of work while also creating a solid understanding of what the horse is. I hope to have a solo show based on the work but admit that I still have a great deal of work to do.

Home From the Common

I had this painting on our resent Winter Exhibition. While it was hanging on the wall something didn’t feel right to me, it just didn’t feel finished, I couldn’t explain what it was that bothered me about it but there was something that had to change, so the very next day I took it off the wall and started working on it. I added paint, I added something without really knowing what it was but it felt good. I started to break down the tension in the painting, the tension put there by trying to reach a deadline. I broke down the fearful marks and replaced them with playful, confident and defiant marks. I added a part of my self which was missing all along. Most might not even notice the difference and that is okay but I feel better now. The chestnut mare in the painting is Emma, the darling horse that I am lucky to ride in the mornings.

It has been a very long time since my mother has had so many paintings on display at one time and how I just love each one of them. They say that one should paint the things that one loves and judging from the care taken with each of these little characters it is unquestionable that my mother loves her chickens and geese. It was great fun to paint with my mother long into the cold winter nights with the fire going and the music playing I hope that there are still many of those nights ahead of us.

For those of you who would like a sneak peak at what will be on display at the exhibition, all the Current Work folders under the artists names have been updated. Hope to see you on Saturday.
