Trace: new contemporary art exhibition opens at Basement @ Bunyan this week

Two local artists, with very different approaches to figurative art, have an exhibition opening today (Tuesday) at the Basement @ Bunyan.

Following on from their joint exhibition in 2015, Fiona Wilson and Jean-Luc Almond present their second exhibition ‘Trace’ which embraces their different styles, but shares similar underlying themes.

Often working from life, Fiona may choose to leave out certain features of the figure or even erase them to aid the balance of the composition.

Jean-Luc often obscures features or hides them within shadow leaving just an essence showing through.

Both processes aim to provoke the viewer to search deeper within and challenge the way we view figurative art.
