DREAMING – an exhibition of paintings by Ingrid Russell

Ingrid will be holding a solo exhibition at The Event Horizon Gallery in Katoomba from Wednesday 3rd August to Sunday 16th August.

The main focus of her current work is based on an intuitive form of expressionist abstract and figurative works, which Ingrid draws from her “personal dreaming”. Her bold use of colour and line work has images jumping from the canvas. “I start with layers of colour and the images emerge, often surprising me. Once the theme has emerged, the painting quickly resolves, as if by itself. I become the catalyst through which the canvas speaks”. Ingrid only recently started this style of painting and has found great satisfaction from letting her imagination free reign.

Ingrid has also created a children’s picture book featuring 12 of her paintings and drawings, which will also be on display. “Beauty in the Woods” will be launched at the opening of her exhibition, Saturday 8th from 2:00 till 4:00pm, and signed copies will be available for purchase.

An invitation is extended to all BMCAC members to attend the opening.
