Helen Tabor, Inside Out

HELEN TABOR, INSIDE OUT
10 August 2019 - 31 August 2019

Aldeburgh

Thompson’s Gallery in Aldeburgh is holding an eagerly awaited solo exhibition by the celebrated Scottish artist Helen Tabor. Helen’s wonderfully ethereal oil paintings of both people and landscapes have made her one of our most successful contemporary artists. For this particular solo exhibiton, Helen has explored how similar painting is to gardening, a colour combination, a composition, a feeling - takes on a life of its own and is guided by a force quite out of the artist’s control. She has to be patient and calmly trust that the decisions she makes will lead to something interesting and pleasing. The inspiration for the work in this exhibition has come from a variety of sources. Helen’s life in the countryside surrounded by trees, birdsong and animals, her garden and landscapes of the area around where she lives and seascapes of the wild and beautiful Western Isles of Scotland. Another unexpected area of inspiration has come from an interest in people of the far north who live close to the Arctic circle and Finland. The title for this exhibition ‘Inside out’ seems appropriate, referring partly to the recurring image in certain paintings of looking out or in through a window and partly to the combination of landscapes, seascapes and interiors in her work. More significantly though, it alludes to the idea of a painting beginning in the mind’s eye of the artist, like a seed or bulb and gradually emerging, taking on unexpected and wonderful shapes and turns as it develops its own identity.

Terence Clarke

His landscapes and still lives are richly worked with a subtle and expressive use of paint, with influences ranging from Matisse to the Scottish Colourists.

19 June 2019 - 6 July 2019

In an era where fear claims headlines and division pervades conversation, painter Michael G Clark makes a case for the opposite - With Love.

Painted in some of the artist's favourite locations around France and Italy, 'Avec Amour' whisks viewers from the Champs-Élysées to sunrise in Venice, on to quiet cafes in Le Marais and the side streets of Saint-Germain. By lifting spirits, encouraging enjoyment and reminding all of the lighter side to life, Michael G Clark's exhibition offers an oasis of calm.

A group of painters met at Lincoln’s Inn Fields on 21st May 1823 to form the Society of British Artists as an alternative to the Royal Academy where the membership was limited to fifty members. Although the Society was granted a Charter in 1846 it was not until Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee Year of 1887, under the leadership of James McNeill Whistler that the Society could have the prefix ‘Royal’ and Whistler raised the profile of the Society by setting standards of acceptance. In the years that followed, the Society attracted many painters and sculptors of note including Walter Sickert, Philip de László, LS Lowry, Henry Moore, Peter Greenham, Sir Roger de Grey, Carel Weight and Colin Hayes.
