North Bristol Art Trail 2017

The North Bristol Art Trail November24th 25th and 26th

Takes place on a yearly basis on the last weekend in November. This year I am exhibiting with Isobel Galt Morris at 26 Sefton Park Road Bristol. It is venue 36 on the trail.northbristolartists.org.uk The website has an interactive  map to guide around the trail. We are starting the weekend with a preview between 7pm-9pm on Friday 24th.Saturday and Sunday we are open 10am-6pm. There are 4 venues in Sefton Park road open. There is an interactive app which can be downloaded apps.cactus.co.uk/nba.from Googleplay or AppStore.

This year I have been experimenting with a technique which started 3 years ago at the retrospective exhibition of Paul Klee (born 1879-1940). at Tate Modern. After seeing the exhibition I was intrigued by what Paul Klee described as Oil transfers. He taught these techniques at the Bauhaus. He used oil paint to make transfers -a type of monoprint. Examples of this technique are "The Twittering Machine" and" Ghost of a Genius" a self portrait by Paul Klee. I experimented with sketches and used ideas connected with Paul Klees use of colours from Green to red and red to green and used shapes in a post cubist way. Many of my paintings using these techniques have been based on life drawing themes. However this year I have also included new themes using dogs and rooms. There are also favourites from previous years and some twig and ink sketches

For me retirement provided the perfect opportunity to explore my lifetime interest in painting and drawing. I decided that when I retired I was going to paint so I enrolled in life drawing classes several years beforehand and completed a Foundation Art Course at Queens Road Bristol after I retired. I found studio space in my second year at the Bristol Diving School and when that was sold I moved to Hamilton House in Stokes Croft.
Early in 2014 I became inspired by the Paul Klee Exhibition at Tate Modern and this saw my painting change  direction. I've always been experimental and this year I've found myself particularly interested by the oil transfer techniques and exploring them as well as cubist and colour techniques that Paul Klee used, in my  drawing and paintings.
I practised using cubes and produced some from red to green paintings. I used different transfer ways using a variety of sketches. Klee's transfer was a type of monoprint using black oil paint. Last year I started my journey and there were a number of changes from using one transfer in oil experimenting with backgrounds, through to animal sketches, printing sketches, to the most recent paintings   where I am using sketch transfers on top of each other and painting shapes in colours from red to green. This year the techniques have developed and I have 8 new works:- "The gods within me", "Twisting Pierrot", 2 in One reclining", "Flying","3in One", "Arising Up"," Evolution" and "Tumbling around". I have also done 4 quirky pets "Cat","Dog1","Doodle","Dog2".All semi abstract.  
About 20 years ago I was introduced to the technique of using twig ink and wash in the life drawing setting. Using a twig seemed to free my  work as the line can be thick or thin at random. I have also been searching along the lines less is more and the simple quick sketches, "Stretching" and "Titillating" are in twig and ink giving them an emotional and moving quality. The third is an ink only sketch "Stretching". I started using grey scale painting at College and I wanted to explore painting portraits and this led to the 2 paint sketches "Black on White" and "White on Black". All the pictures are  on sale as limited giclee prints.                                                                           June Hoy September 2015
