Diana Matthews: Transient Space
9 March - 9 April

 

In this new exhibition Diana Matthews, who studied at the Bath Academy of Art in the 1950s, has completed a new series of semi-figurative paintings. Using the composition as a vehicle for exploring abstract form and tonal study, this body of work includes still lifes set against backdrops of architectural studies of Bath and Florence; simplified objects and pure abstract paintings. Diana Matthews was tutored by Anthony Fry and William Scott, whose own painting has been a constant point of inspiration for her.
