Sunday morning I began to help hang the exhibition of my friend and talented artist Clare Ormsby in her solo exhibition at the Berni Gallery at the Jersey Arts Centre. The exhibition went up really well and I look forward to taking it all in at the preview.

This is Clare’s first exhibition featuring her three dimensional work. Her new collection explores how art can transform the mundane. A mixture of 2D paintings and 3D forms often merge and become one, playing with how you see the work and it also questions the value of objects as Clare transforms everyday objects into beautifully exquisite art forms.

Clare is well known for her unique style that uses both painting and drawing techniques that creates beautifully intricate surfaces. Clare is a real colourist and with this exhibition her use of colour and forms make for an exciting, vibrant and beautiful exhibition.

Make sure you don’t miss it!

The exhibition runs: 24th January – 12th February 2011, Berni Gallery, Jersey Arts Centre. The preview is Monday 24th January 5.30-7pm.

Here’s a quick snap I took of the work setting up today – just to wet your appetite. Hopefully see you at the preview.
