Gallery – Human Form in 2 and 3 Dimensions exhibition

David Walton: Head of a woman, red biro

The Human Form in 2 and 3 Dimensions exhibition:  Saturday 8th July – 12th August

This exhibition includes works by Charles Walker, Nick Grew and David Walton.  Charles, who runs a series of Life Drawing groups, is an award winning artist.  He states that life drawing and painting and portraiture have never lost their appeal. He said: “What a privilege to be the artist in that situation.  I try simply to respond to the challenge the person sitting for me in an honest and colourful way.”

Nick, an Associate of the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists, is a sculptor who works mainly in clay cast, into bronze or resin. His work includes portraiture, figurative and abstracted works, with the latter based on the human figure and emotions. He said: “I’m inspired by the beauty and complexity of the human face, body and anatomy and how this expresses the intensity and depth of human thought, feeling and experience.”

He is also due to give talks to art societies on ‘Some Purposes of Portraiture.’ His work is in the the permanent collections of Derby Art Gallery, The University of Birmingham, The RBSA, and the Edge Art Centre.
