SHELF-PORTRAITS (grown-up shelfies!)

My bookshelf paintings formally known as ‘Shelfies’

have had a re-branding ready for http://www.parallaxaf.co/ and will henceforth wish be known as…

SHELF-PORTRAITS

this has a more professional air, and relates directly to the idea of traditional oil painting,

whereas ‘Shelfie’ automatically brings snapshot photography to mind….

And here’s the latest….

Meet the artist: Roo Waterhouse

Saturday, 3 May, 2014 – 12:00 to 14:00

Come and meet Roo Waterhouse; we’re currently showing her exhibition The Comfort of Things at The Town Hall.

Roo’s paintings are inspired by household objects which she depicts in situ, often larger than life.  She loves to paint using oils – the traditional medium of reverential portraiture.  Her paintings observe and appreciate our relationships with the often unnoticed familiar objects in our everyday surroundings; exploring how they can hold onto the stories of our lives, becoming links to past times.

The Comfort of Things – coming soon!!
