Description

The Harrison Chambers of Distinction are joining forces with Gallery 454 to present a group of artists who are on the rise in Northern Ireland.

A curated selection of their unique paintings will be on display in a beautiful room in the quirky Harrison hotel in Belfast. Viewers will have the opportunity to discover and appreciate art in this welcoming and relaxing interior setting.

‘Artists on the Rise Pop-up’ features six accomplished emerging painters: Ronan Bowes, Karl Hagan, Janet Keith, Rachel Lawell, Joel Simon and Katherine St Angelo. They have received recognition for their artistic merit in Northern Ireland and beyond, with their work being awarded, included in public collections, or exhibited at high profile venues. This exhibition brings the artists together for the first time, to showcase and spread the word about their talent.

Ronan depicts vibrant abstract paintings, colourful and harmonious compositions with bold gestural marks.

Karl has made intriguing semi-figurative images of nuclear explosions, capturing at the same time their terrible destructive power and their captivating visual spectacle.

Janet’s works are lively and carefully balanced abstract paintings inspired by the colours, lights and shapes of nature and the rhythms of music.

Katherine’s pieces are intense atmospheric semi-abstract landscapes evoking the forms of natural surroundings and the emotional experience of being immersed in them. Rachel portrays charismatic self-absorbed female figures revisiting and challenging traditional representations of women in cinema and popular culture.

Joel’s work is inspired by films too, but also by photography, and he paints intriguing subjects trying to capture their personalities and stories.

 

This exhibition is a joint initiative by Francesca Biondi, Gallery 545 Art Director and Curator, and Melanie Harrison, Owner of the Harrison Chambers of Distinctions. Their collaboration has been inspired and guided by their passion for art, and their desire to promote local artists and offer clients and visitors a unique art experience.

 

Artworks can also be viewed at www.gallery545.com. They can be purchased at Gallery 545, online or in person. For sales and enquiries, contact Francesca hello@gallery545.com / 07960 130414.
