McAllister Thomas is delighted to present a solo exhibition by painter Bob Aldous.
Life affirming and beautiful, a collection of new works from the studio of Bob Aldous. The works draw on a deep respect for nature, a dance of dappled light on a rippling stream, the reflection of changing clouds in water. These scapelands of the imagination draw their inspiration from the natural world.
The paintings use subtle and experimental techniques derived from both eastern and western traditions. Inks and acrylics applied to silk are inspired from ancient Chinese brush painting; tempera and oil on canvas inspired by the painters from 16th century Venice.These light infused canvases draw inspiration from masters from the vast tradition of paintings but look forward towards a life confirming celebration of light and colour. Just what we need after we come out after this period of lockdown.
