Yesterday the mister and I attended a private view at Farley Farm House, of a new and exciting exhibition of work celebrating Sussex.
Philomena only recently moved to Sussex so portrays it with fresh eyes. Yet manages to 'nail' it completely.
Her unique style lends movement and power to her subjects. With elements of mystery and discovery making the work intriguing and fun.
Her canvases are a perfect fit for Farley Farm with it's wonderful views of the South Downs, and it's artistic associations.
Picasso was one of the many visitors to the home of his friend the Surrealist painter Roland Penrose and his wife Lee Miller, who moved there in 1949. As you would imagine the house has a lot of spirituality about it and not a small amount of magic.
I think Philomena's work is magical too.
Apologies for the shonky angles of her paintings but I was taking the pics around a large body of people. I hope you can get a sense of her beautiful art.
The exhibition is on until 21st September and all of the work is for sale. I would recommend a visit to the house as well as the exhibition. Farley Farm is a well kept secret, don't forget you heard about it here.
I would also like to welcome as a new Google Friend Connect Follower Hazzy who blogs here.
Plus highlight a fabulous post about the Giants who visited Liverpool, over at Lyn's blog. Pop over, you'll be glad you did.
