Robin Gibson Gallery - David Eastwood & Maryanne Wick





It's a beautiful day and I'm out of my sick bed so off to Robin Gibson Gallery to see
two very different shows by two very different artists...

The eclectic compositions in David Eastwood's paintings create an almost stifled atmosphere, but at the same time put a smile on the viewer's face with his whimsical dialogue...

He has created a feeling of almost loneliness, of rooms in the middle of being emptied with traces of rubbish and unfinished packing.

And the colours are sumptuous to say the least but I found myself quite taken with the big black and white work on paper...

Maryanne Wick's work is so much different from David's work, as I walked slowly surveying these intimate still life's I felt a sense of calm overwhelm me almost like marking the end of a season.

With her use of a soft green palette revealing the other side of nature and a darting lizard. These paintings have an essence of Giorgio Morandi which is definitely a good thing...
