Luminous an exhibition by Julie Oldfield accompanied by Adrian Grey stone balancing 24th August -11th September

Luminous 24th August – 11th September

Julie Oldfield will be exhibiting her  new work on copper, brass and steel sheets along with Adrian Gray, the pioneer of stone balancing art.

Popular local artist Julie Oldfield returns to the Malthouse with her inventive and atmospheric mixed media paintings that have been weathered by time, the sea, oxidation and chemical treatments in order to create texture and capture coastal light and mood.

This is a wonderful opportunity to see Julie’s work in Lyme Regis at the same time  three paintings are being shown at this year’s Society of Women Artists’ annual exhibition at the Mall Galleries London SW1, 24 – 29 September.

Julie will be joined by Adrian Grey

Adrian Gray is the pioneer of stonebalancing art. Over the last 18 years he has been exploring the fine art of balance. His work has evolved to include new ideas and themes, but the predominant feature remains the beauty and seemingly impossible nature of balance. Using carefully selected weathered stones he creates sculptures that range in size from meditative desktop balances to monumental 6m installations. His work has been sited in public and private spaces across the world. Critics have likened Adrian’s work, and the dramatic effect it has on his audience, to the power and presence of the ancient menhirs and stone circles that stud the landscape in which Adrian lives and works. In their balanced state, the sculptures exist for as long as the elements allow. Many of these transient pieces have been recorded in a series of photographic prints and a book.
