Michael Aubrey and Frederic Chevarin / A Contrast in Styles
Michael Aubrey’s masterly handling of tone and colour have established him as a leading watercolourist. Whilst being widely varied in subject matter they all display the same qualities of dynamic lighting, brilliant colour and an unerring sense of composition.
Michael is a Fellow of the British Watercolour Society and his work is to be found in public and private collections internationally ; over 30 solo exhibitions have been held in London, Paris and other countries including those in Australia, Malaysia and Sri Lanka, some under the patronage of the British Council, which has described him as painting “ in the finest English watercolour tradition”. He lives in a 15th century drovers’ inn in Oundle, Northamptonshire, where he has his studio and gallery, in which work may be viewed by appointment.
Frédéric Chevarin is a French sculptor, deeply fascinated by stone and its potential. His sculpture is unique as each piece is the result of a deep search into the significance of life. Carving stone means conveying feelings, emotions, deep peace and harmony with Nature. His technique is a way to transform stone into gentle flowing shapes, which become immaterial to connect us with a deep feeling of happiness, venturing into a journey through our minds and souls.
Frederic has been mentored by Helaine Blumenfeld OBE FRBS and Vasco Montecchi (Italy). He has exhibited widely in the UK, France and Italy. His creations are located both in private collections in the UK, France, Italy and Switzerland, and in public places in High gate cemetery in London, Haddenham & Thame Parkway and the Willem Park in Milton Keynes.
The exhibition will run from 10th - 19th November (including Sunday), open daily from 10am until 6pm.
