Life Stills Exhibition – Lotte Inch Gallery, York 16th Mar – 28th May 2016

January 27, 2016

Looking forward to showing a number of still life paintings in this exhibition


The tradition of still life painting goes back hundreds of years, all too often receiving bad press for being unexciting. This exhibition offers the chance to look at the subject matter with renewed enthusiasm and to explore the many possibilities for creative responses to a well know but oft-overlooked theme.

The exhibition will feature breath-taking work from York based painter Amy Rose Clyfan as well as Michael Kirkman, Alexandra Leadbeater and Becky Adams with special art-star guests Edward Burra and Ivon Hitchens!

More information about this exciting exhibition will be revealed soon but in the meantime, save the date for the opening of ‘Life Stills’ on Wednesday 16th March 2016!

My Wave painting is taking central stage in a masterful suspense thriller set in a luxury apartment by the Sussex coast. A play within a play with head-spinning twists and turns to the very last shocking moment. It’s also quite funny…!
