Escape into Colour is a pop-up exhibition of new work by four of Gala Fine Art’s painters – Dawn Beckles, Lucinda Metcalfe, Dan Parry-Jones and Lucy du Sautoy. Prevented from being held as planned in London from 19 to 22 November because of lockdown, the exhibition was previewed on this website instead. Dates of the London show to be confirmed.
Because escaping to sunnier climes is no mean feat right now, 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.
