Visit the Birmingham Art Gallery on 12.2.14

Been told by my lecturer that some famous female artists works are having their in the  exhibition at Birmingham Art Gallery which is free admission and it worth every pence to pay a visit.  My husband drive me there on Wednesday and we park our car at the China Town in Birmingham and walk to the gallery.  The exhibition is held at the side of the Birmingham Art Gallery,   walking into the gallery and it is free admission and also allow us to take photos of the artist's works. It is very rare that we can take photos of the artists works.
Good, Good Boy by Artist Barbara Walker

I have chosen a few artists' works which  I like the best.  Artist Barbara Walker  - "Good, Good Boy" base on the world of Ladybird children's books. I love her painting which based on every day life story and her drawing look like illustration  paintings which are amazing beautiful works.

Condor and the Mile by Artist Lynette Yiadom Boakye

Artist Lynette Yiadom Boakye  - "Condor and the Mile"  - base on her imaginative to create her painting and all her drawing base of black women, children and men.  Her  painting base on 2 black children at the beach the pose are so natural  and beautiful.
The Dorothy Series by Artist June Wayne

Artist June Wayne  - "The Dorothy Series" base on her visual mother  biography. Wayne uses traces of objects to represent her mother at different stages of her life.  Simplicity in the  abstract artwork and beautifully added  in painting to create a series of artwork. 
 My touch by Artist Hermione Withshire

"My touch" by Artist Hermione Withshire. She uses a range of media to suggest the human body on her artwork. "My touch" is made up of ten fragile glass which protrude from the wall which represent touch, imprint and a person's finger tips.  I love the sculpture and when it pin to the wall it create shadows and reflection and it look like a hand with 5 fingers. Beautifully present and display to create extra depth.

Smooth metal body by Artist Alice Channer

"Smooth metal Body" by Artist Alice Channer.  A 3-D dimensional rendering of drapery is turned into a distorted 2-D digital print on fabric. On the reverse of the silk, smoke rings are printed to the
approximate height  of a person's mouth when standing represent a human body. I simply fall in love with this piece of sculpture, it create a 2-D to 3-D on the drape when you look around it and  on the reverse side of the silk where you can see a human body where it is reflected on the fabric.  Incredible beautiful work.

 Costume for mourning and several of her paintings by Artist Estella Canziani.

"Costume for mourning,  Saint Colomban" by Artist Estella Canziani. She imitate the convention of fashion illustration, in the profile on three quarter length formats and focus on the costume. I love her painting especially the details on the costumes are amazing beautifully detailed.

I can't really comment on the artists works, during our this foundation course of art and design we been taught to look into the depth of the painting on how it represent. It is a learning curves and I only able to appreciate  the artist works and amaze by their beautiful works.

Enjoying myself at the exhibition and then we proceed to Birmingham Library which my friend, Maggie told me it is a must to have a look as it is beautiful. Amazing beautiful building with 6th level high, every level with shelves full of books. At the 1st floor where the reception  and some of the students artworks are display at the gallery from our Sutton Coldfield  college.  I feel proud that our school student artworks are display in this main gallery.

After taking some photos and it is time to get some food and then head back home. I have a wonderful time enjoying something that I love to do which is browsing the artists work and taking photos.
