KRISTIN PARKINSON: RHYTHM, PATTERN AND COLOUR Wednesday 5 February 2020 - Tuesday 18 February 2020 Viewing until 12pm Tuesday 18 February 2020 Frater Gallery  Closed Function: 1.30pm Saturday 8 February 2020

This exhibition is focused on design through the study of architecture, printmaking and the visual arts.

The work in this exhibition is executed with oil pastels. Some examples of printmaking will be included for interest, although they will not be available for purchase. This printmaking is one of the precursors of the current work.

The exhibition is centred around the depiction of vessels in a contemporary context, considering form, rhythm, balance and pattern of the whole image and a continuing interest in colour.

The images on display are sometimes painterly, sometimes linear or hard-edged and stylised, or a combination of all. The contents of the images are taken from the interaction of shapes that are of particular interest and are usually depicting everyday objects or natural elements.

The aim is to convey the essence of the composition by means of abstraction.
