Another art exhibition is up on the walls of our beloved cafe and this time we’ve invited one of our favourite local artists back, Chloe Rodenhurst.
The exhibition comprises of detailed & playful watercolours and ink pieces depicting local landscapes, folk tales and historic Victorian scenes, celebrating the beauty of West Wales and its history. It’s a pure delight.
in her own words:
“I like the sort of art that tells a story. Indeed, we have always told stories through our paintings and my work belongs to this folk art tradition. I find the naive style and vibrant colour of Asian art most inspiring and a passion for textiles informs my perspective of the landscapes in which my tales are set. The watercolour and ink paintings I produce usually depict scenes of stunning West Wales focussing on local history such as the Victorian circus travelling from Aberystwyth to Tregaron or Welsh myths and legends like the Devils Bridge saga. I enjoy portraying the superficially incongruent, for example elephants in Aberystwyth, whilst also paying particular attention to the native flora and fauna.
I am proud to say that I was elected a member of the Association of British Naïve Artists (ABNA) last year. Commissions are welcomed.”
The exhibition will be up until 11th January 2019.
All work is available to purchase: originals, framed prints and a nice collection of greetings cards too.
