96th Meeting Artist
Caroline S Lawrence and Jeremy Ellul
The 96th Art Discussion Group Meeting will be held on Tuesday 18th October 2011 at 19.15hrs at MISCO Training Centre (first floor on right) in Fino Showrooms in Notabile Road, Mriehel. For this meeting the Society is inviting Caroline S. Lawrence, a foreign professional painter and Jeremy Ellul, a budding young artist.
C. S. Lawrence is a talented artist with a love for the art of Lawrence Alma Tadema (1836-1912). Like him Caroline loves the dazzling blue Mediterranean sea and sky, his love of classical art tinged with Art Nouveau trends. When inspired by this artist Caroline rises to great intensity of feeling.
Her art works ‘draw the viewer into a world of coloured light, alternately dazzling in burnished golds and calm in transparent blues'. Hence the title: ‘Azure & Ochre’ of her personal exhibition at the Birgufest 2011 at the Auberge de France in October.
Caroline exhibited in Bahrain in 1992 with great success followed by other exhibitions in Dubai and Saudi Arabia. In 2002 she returned to Malta from where her paternal grandparents originated and who had left for Egypt in 1920. Lately (this summer) Caroline exhibited a fairly large number of works at the Macina in Senglea where she lives.
Jeremy Ellul is the self-taught, unfettered artist, without any preconceived ideas, free and unpredictable, an ‘enfant terrible’. He has already surprised us, one can imagine what he will do in future. With just nine years of work behind him he has already distinguished himself with his freedom of thought and expression.
He is a bold Expressionist, is hardly interested in tradition or convention and while he is primarily interested in aesthetics he experiments with technique but hardly conforms to ‘truth to material’. Jeremy Ellul is organizing a personal exhibition at the Malta Society of Arts Manufactures and Commerce at De La Salle Palace Valletta (28 Oct – 26 Nov 2011).
Both artists are showing several examples of their art work on screen and are ready to answer questions about creativity and technique. The ADG invites its members, art lovers and the general public to this meeting that will surely attract quite a crowd.
