"Life Events"

A Huw Marshall exhibition

"Dedicated to Sally"

This exhibition is inspired by Huw’s thoughts on what has been happening in the world over the last year or so.

Huw generally paints large canvases and his works are multi layered and in line with his life history and long-term knowledge of human bodies having been a Penzance GP until retirement when

he became a fulltime artist. Sometimes his work is portraiture but more often with a degree of abstraction and usually monochrome.

The exhibition consists of two large works and several smaller ones; one large piece is a triptych of three paintings mainly in shades of Prussian blue and white called “Dancing at the End of Time”. The largest piece entitled “Breathe” is one painting on three panels in Naples yellow and white, measures 366cm wide x 152cm high (12ft x 5ft) and this work is deliberately ambiguous, along with his other work, but at the same time designed to be arresting, dramatic and thought provoking. His aim is to stop the viewer and make them think and feel.
