Image Fest Art and Heritage Exhibition
The IMAGE Fest Heritage and Art Exhibition opened in the Loft Chelmsley Wood on June 16th. Featuring the work of North Solihull artists and the “Now and Then” and “Stories Behind the Headstones” heritage projects the exhibition attracted visitors from throughout the borough.
Over the next few weeks we’ll be featuring the work of some of the artists on display, starting today with the work of Carl Knibb.
Carl works with acrylics and oils, utilising the immediacy of acrylics when working outdoors, and finishing pieces in the studio with oils. His landscapes aim to capture the subtlety of light and colour in nature, often painting the same scene several times throughout the seasons. His style is quasi abstract, aiming to convey the actuality of a scene through loose brushwork and suggestion – capturing the play of light on an object rather than the object itself. His evocative canvases have a jewel like quality that stylistically resembles work from the 1930’s.
