Escape into Colour is an exhibition of 35 new pieces by four of Gala Fine Art’s painters – Dawn Beckles, Lucinda Metcalfe, Dan Parry-Jones and Lucy du Sautoy. It was originally due to be held in Brixton, London, from 19 to 22 November 2020 but had to be cancelled because of lockdown. A “private view” took place online over those dates, exclusively for mailing list subscribers. We intend to hold the show in real life in spring 2021, lockdown permitting. Please subscribe to our mailing list in the footer to be kept up to date. In the meantime, the paintings are available for sale here online.
Because escaping to sunnier climes is no mean feat at the moment, we decided it was time for an injection of hot colour into our lives, in the form of vibrant original paintings. These four artists’ colour palettes are a tonic for the soul and are sure to lift your spirits in these challenging times.
For this selection of artists, colour has many different meanings and purposes: they are an extension of the emotions; they are reminders of the past; they evoke society’s obsession with seeing the world through filtered digital images; they convey the sweltering heat of an LA summer by day and by night; they represent the reassuring glow of city lights illuminating the darkness; and they transport us to a lush English country garden in springtime.
Please also take a look at Escape into Colour on YouTube to see the paintings come to life (you’ll find links to each painting’s video when you click on the painting images below too). A printed catalogue accompanies the exhibition and can be requested from Kate using the link below.
