Gallery 1 – Figurescapes: Josephine Allen
Josephine Allen’s exhibition Figurescapes has been inspired by a trip to Europe and seeing the Renaissance religious art in the flesh.
“I love the way they use everyday people and stories of the time to illustrate social themes. I have always done works inspired by theological concepts, in between I do figurative landscapes, a lot of life drawing and other subjects. This exhibition is a way to combine all the elements without leaving the studio.”
Most of the works are pastel and charcoal on rag paper and have been completed over the last eighteen months with a few favorite older works on the theme.
Josephine has been exhibiting since 1985 and is a figurative artist who loves allegory and nature.
