Re-enactment | Louise Bristow,  Oriel Davies Gallery
Louise’s intimately beautiful paintings are created directly in response to arrangements of models and collage elements, reminiscent of miniature stage sets, assembled in her studio. The content of these are inspired by the artist’s large resource of books, magazines and printed ephemera, amassed over time from flea markets, charity shops in the UK and abroad. She also references her own photographs and intricate models she has crafted of buildings (or parts of buildings), kiosks and other three-dimensional forms. Each composition is developed through juxtaposing images and objects in an exploratory process, where initial ideas quickly evolve and shift in unknown directions. Her compelling and intriguing paintings twist time and space, presenting alternative environments for exploration. The meaning or story within each piece is loose, having multiple readings over time and according to circumstance.

Colourfelt | Andreas Rüthi,  Oriel Davies Gallery
Andreas, who lives and works in Monmouthshire, has exhibited his still life paintings in over twenty solo exhibitions worldwide. Oriel Davies is delighted to present colourfelt, his first one-person show in Wales. The work is a constant investigation in new possibilities held within the traditions of painting: from colour and form to the notion of ‘likeness’ and the gaze. Much of his subject matter originates from magazines, prints, books and found objects?and plays with the nature of reproduction and re-presentation. Showing for the first time and throwing the gallery into riotous colour is Field. Consisting of 64 paintings portraying every reproduction in a mushroom guidebook the work celebrates the hallucinogenic power of colour, while representing the potential held within each reproduction. The title of the show colorfelt refers to both the experience of colour and the German word for field which is Feld, pronounced felt.
