I was lucky enough to be invited to the private viewing last night of the art fair that will be on until 4th February 2017 in Kensington Town Hall. Parallax art fair has 200 independent exhibitors (from around the world) and around 7000 art masterpieces on display from sculpture, textiles, oil and watercolour paintings.
I met the lovely Jennifer Morrow from the BBC’s great painting challenge in 2017 who told me about how her collection represents how she feels, being from Belfast and living in London. Jennifer described being isolated in London, being surrounded by so many people and familiar faces but still being feeling alone in such a big city. The collection on display was inks, watercolours and alcohol to create abstract faces – beautifully blended with fine detail of rich bold hues and layers building up facial features. I haven’t seen anything like it before – it was very original!
I would recommend a visit before the event finishes this weekend, it’s always great to meet artists and find out more about their inspiration first hand.
Parallax art fair 2018 review:
