Melanie Tong: An Exhibition of Original Paintings
03 Mar 2018 - 24 Mar 2018
Lovelys Annex Gallery presents an exhibition of original paintings by local abstract artist Melanie Tong. Melanie uses her own photographs of the East Kent Coastline as the starting point for her acrylic paintings.
Paint is layered to produce a range of colours, found in the natural seascapes, that reveal themselves through the final surface. The paintings show an abstracted view from the photographs, occasionally including recognisable landmarks or forms of particular areas, but focusing on the forms that the tides and the coastal features create.
