ART EXHIBITION – Richie Dean & Irene Funnel

Date to be re-arranged

Richie Dean is a well renowned local artist who originally worked in Watercolour and Acrylic. However, more recently he has embraced the advancements in modern technology and finds that using digital medium provides him with the freedom to be more creative resulting in some stunning pictures. Having lived and travelled throughout Wales for forty years Richie gets his inspiration from the diverse beauty of the region and through his love of music.

A place to ponder – Richie Dean

Irene Funnell captures the beauty of the hills and coasts of Wales in her stunning glassware gaining her inspiration not only from the landscape but also more recently the patterns found in textiles. The colours and textures of rocks, sand, sea and sky are suggested by the juxtaposition of glasses of different composition which react together to create the effect of subtle shading and fusing, whilst the elements of the countryside; trees, woodland creatures and the four seasons are created using a variety of methods including cutting, fusing and painting. In addition her interest in textiles has resulted in the exploration of a new technique which results in more delicate and sculptural forms with work having a textured, printed, fabric-like quality using images from nature and abstract patterns.
