700th Blogpost- Events- Rozanne Bell Exhibition @Unicorn Gallery, Widnes

19 Nov

030It can be interesting sometimes when you pass by places on the bus or train and something reaches out and grabs your attention by the jugular.

A sign on the window of Unicorn Gallery said ‘Meet celebrated artist Rozanne Bell’. Since I hadn’t the foggiest who she was, I googled her, found her website and was amazed by the quality and scope of her artwork.

Greeted enthusiastically by her dog Hector and a glass of mulled wine, I stepped out of my comfort zone and into a whole other universe- Fine Art, very fine indeed as I examined a couple of paintings. The Meadows one stood out.

I asked Rozanne about a couple of details, mainly her use of glitter, as it tends to get everywhere when I use it, but in her pictures, it is very fine and expertly applied. She said she sprays it on, but if I tried that, I’d probably get it in my hair and everywhere but the picture! The Meadow full of flowers was intrically woven together, as with all her paintings, a mixture of layered images, made up of glitter, resin, oils, inks, gessos, gold and silver leaf, all vibrantly mixed and organised in an iconic and unique way. So unique that each painting is slightly varied, maybe in colour or slight change of detail, but no two are exactly the same.

Her other works on show include Wildflower Beach, Bejewelled skies over windmill, Red lane and many other pieces. I have to say I really like Starry night with its full, yellow/orange moon over the bay. The moons in her pictures are much more impressive than the so-called Super moons I’ve seen recently, but that’s just me!

Looking around the Gallery, I saw some other interesting pieces by artists like Steven Scholes, Paul Ehlen, Joan Puerto and Gisela Ueberall, particularly upstairs. Rozanne Bell’s Exhibition is still on for another week until the 26th November. Prices range from £515- £1295.

An interesting glimpse into a versatile and very imaginative Artist. Rozanne is off to Tavistock Picture Framing Galleries in Devon next week with New York and several other prints.

Unicorn Gallery, Widnes is open 9AM-5PM (Closed Sunday and Thursday)-
