'The World About Us' - Malvern Theatres Exhibition

by Claire Mitchell 24. September 2012 20:00

This five week show is all about two artist's reaction to the world about them.

Diana Aungier-Rose, although UK born, lived in South Africa for most of her teenage years before returning to London in 1979. She now paints and runs art classes in her home studio in the Cotswolds, visiting France as often as she can. Di's years in South Africa had a profound effect on her work; the sumptuous colours of the landscapes, the skies and the people of the country are reflected in the opulence and vibrancy of her paintings. As she explains: "I find everyday life so crowded with irresistible images and impressions".

Early influences were the Expressionists Dufy, Matisse and Sisley as well as The Fauvists Gillian Ayers and Kandinsky. Nowadays Diana has a fresh, colourful and joyful style all of her own. Many of her paintings are semi-abstract celebrations of light, texture and colour. 

Diana has exhibited widely throughout UK and her work is held in collections across Europe.

Gillian Mowbray is back in the theatre by popular demand, having had a very successful show earlier in the year. She lives and paints in beautiful, rural Mid-Wales. Inspiration is all around her; from the heights of the Cambrian Mountains to the still waters of the Elan Valley. 

Her landscapes are partly from life and partly from imagination. 

Since joining the online gallery she has developed a faithful following of buyers keen to enjoy her graphic, expressionist style, consisting of many layers of colour and texture, gradually built up. The freshness of these paintings evoke the very best of the UK countryside. Her use of colour is both creative and often quite unexpected.

The show runs every day until 28th October.

Martin Ulbricht

Born in 1948, Martin Ulbricht has painted all his life and is largely self taught. An early inclination to pursue a career as an artist gave way to one in aviation. His years in aviation allowed him to develop his technique and style and this period of his life provided a multiplicity of inspirations on a variety of themes. Almost from the outset, portraiture has been his abiding passion, although in more recent times his contemporary landscapes, cityscapes, beach scenes and sunsets etc. have become much sought after. Having become a professional artist, Ulbricht likes to remain flexible regarding style and subject. He always stays true to his premise that, whatever the painting it must give its owner constant pleasur
