This week sees the opening of our exhibition titled “East End Plus” by the renowned artist Maria-Theresa Fernandes. The work itself is an exploration of East London culture during the Olympic summer and her work encapsulates the positivity which London and indeed the whole of Britain was feeling in 2012.
There are also a number of larger installations which were inspired by her time in Florence as well as a number of smaller pieces. For those with an interest in rowing, there are a number of rowing/dock themed pieces on display. For those wanting a souvenir of the exhibition, Maria-Theresa has kindly compiled a number of signed prints which you are able to purchase and take away with you. For those who are wanting to buy the paintings please talk to the helpful members of Curlew Rowing Club who will be able to assist you should you require it.
A few reviews of the artists work…
“Admiring Teresa´s paintings we are touched by her pictorial sensitivity. Difficult task in light colours (volume and transparencies on a clear basis). Few do it due to the required dedication with pallet knife(no brush).It´s painting consecrated by the love to paint.” Radha Abramo(Renowned art critique)comments at Solo Exhibition Catalog at SESC Paulista in June 84
“Each piece seems to be autobiographical in someway. The fabric pieces are delicate and womanly, whimsical and free” – Art Michigan 1990
