There is a solo exhibition of new paintings by Stockport based artist Tricia Warrington centred on the theme of isolation at The Portico Gallery & Library during September 13. Her inspiration has been taken from a solitary object in a landscape, or places where one can find solitude. In an age in which we stress the importance of being in the company of others every moment of the day, either in person or via ever increasing methods of technology, it is rare that we find the time or inclination to seek out somewhere to be alone. Yet often, it is only in solitude that we finally have space to think, to gain insight into ourselves and contemplate the world around us – a truth reflected in Tricia’s paintings, which find beauty in the lonely places and reveal just how splendid isolation can be.
Abstract work is based on opposing colours giving a limited pallette. Also pen & wash scenes of Manchester and wherever she's travelled . Past themes have included local jazz musicians also large floral compositions which reflect her original roots in textile design. To visit the studio please email or phone as as she keeps non office hours. She also regularly shows work at The Colin Jellicoe Gallery, Portland St, Manchester.
Born locally in Brinnington she studied Art & Design at York St John's and gained a BA Hons in 1981 ( Collegiate Leeds ).
