Through hidden coves to enchanted cottage gardens, abstract landscapes sing with colour in this captivating new exhibition of prints and paintings from Ealing artist Iona Stern.
This marks her first solo exhibition at For Arts Sake, which she describes as “a collection of memories… My work is a visual diary – whether it’s a place visited or an exhibition seen. I look for the abstract, the ‘big picture’, rather than the incidental”.
'A Place in Time' brings together acrylic and oil paintings and monotype silkscreen prints, which take us on a journey through Cornish bays, via purple fields of heather to the dying days of summer and into the clear eastern light of the Yorkshire Moors.
Iona is a former ad agency creative director who quit to pursue a career as a full-time artist in 2011. She lives and works from her home studio, a converted former stable in Haven Green.
