Worthing Open Exhibition

M Tredwell Les DemoisellesI currently have two paintings on display at Worthing Museum and Art Gallery in Chapel Road, Worthing. This piece, ‘Les Demoiselles’ references Picasso’s ‘Les Demoiselles D’Avignon’. I was inspired by the dressmaker’s forms in the theatre¬†department, arranging them on paper to recreate the group¬†of figures in Picasso’s painting while trying to capture the colour, tone and feel of a mid 20th century illustration. The other painting in the show returns to a favourite theme of ‘chairs’ which I’m exploring more and more in my latest work.
