The Magic of Light – solo exhibition by
Roger Beale AO
30 April – 29 May
Light caressing the edge of an object, revealing its personality, then fading into darkness combines with composition and colour to make memorable art.
Every painting in this series has a glow. I am entranced by the way light, especially warm slanting light, brings flowers, landscapes and people to life. My subjects this year include Paris’s famous Luxembourg Gardens in Spring, café portraits of the characters of the 6th arrondissement in the heart of Paris’s left bank (Rive Gauche), through vertiginous vineyards in Piedmont to moody memories of Sicily. And, of course, a revel of glorious blooms from our spring and summer.
Join us at the opening 2pm Saturday 30 April
