Large scale paintings, drawings and textiles by Victoria Rees and Peter Lloyd Jones
In this joint exhibition, artists Victoria Rees and Peter Lloyd-Jones are showing paintings, drawings and textiles created in their studios near Tetbury.
A wonderful chance to see both their paintings and textiles hung together, revealing the influence their fine art has on their textiles.
Victoria will be exhibiting, alongside a collection of her ’45 minute’ portrait paintings, a wall hanging – Cunning Little Vixen – created for a production of Janaceck’s opera and exhibited in The Silk Museum, Lebanon,
Also on show are the ‘Aria’ stole, commissioned by the International Opera Awards, plus a ‘sizzling’ double stole designed for Garsington Opera’s world premier of The Skating Rink.
“One of the bonuses for me as a fine artist working with musicians has been to find a way to bring my love of textiles into my creative process. Some of my most intimate drawings have been made on stage and during rehearsals.”
From a different perspective, Peter combines his interest of domestic spaces and fabrics in his drawings and paintings. This year, examples of his paintings were featured in House and Gardens and Elle Decor magazines, showing work produced as a result of his ongoing collaboration with the textile company Whiteworks.
Peter is on the advisory board of Pygmallion Fine Art and teaches part time at St Edward’s Oxford. His work has been selected for the 2018 Royal West of England Academy’s exhibition and also for the Sunday Times watercolour exhibition.
Both Artists graduated from the Ruskin School of Drawing and fine art, Oxford, then as post graduates from the Royal Academy schools, London.
Peter and Victoria were awarded the HelikerLaHoten foundation residency in Maine, USA, this year.
The exhibition runs from Wednesday 31 October through to and including Saturday 8 December 2018
