ANA BIANCHI / EMMA DUNBAR / FIONA MILLAIS
19th October - 6th November 2019
After studying Design and Fine Art and working initially in sculpture, Ana Bianchi now focuses on painting - her interest in 3D form evident in her pictures. Bianchi’s recent landscapes are made up of almost abstract colour blocks, while her still lives are structured on earlier sculpture practice. Emma Dunbar studied printmaking in Surrey, having wide success since. In Dunbar’s acrylics on board, vivid colours capture the inspiring essence of a scene and celebrate the decorative qualities of everyday objects, sometimes also using collage. Great-granddaughter of pre-Raphaelite Sir John Everett Millais, Fiona Millais studied Fine Art in Newcastle. Using landscape or still life as starting points, her paintings rarely represent the primary subject directly. Intrigued by landscape shapes, her pictures evolve from memories, drawings and notes, often also imbued with music, literature and collected natural objects - creating interwoven layers of texture, colour and history.
