‘Themes and Variations’ is a group exhibition of works by Errol Linton, Dom Hanley, Justin Hindley and Maggie Winnall. Errol Linton’s work transports the spectator immediately into a world of hustle and bustle filled with music, and voices, melting them into an explosion of colour, pattern and form. Some of Linton’s previous works take simple scenes to the extreme with magnified voices, shadowy figures and prying eyes. Bold in colour and brush stroke, Linton’s paintings at first remind the viewer of fauvism and surrealism yet they are very idiosyncratic in style and denote of the artist’s unique power of imagination and strength of expression. Brixton born, Errol starts from a small simple sketch, developing the composition from memory and imagination.

Maggie Winnall draws her textile inspiration from original art quilters such as the women from Gees Bend Alabama and other contemporary quilting practices from the US and Europe. Her favourite influences include Nancy Crow, Lisa Call, Eleanor McCain, and Pamela Allen. Drawing from these women Maggie uses recycled cloth, textures and lines to create colourful abstract art through her quilts. She combines her traditional influences with her contemporary vision.

Justin Hindley has had a growing fascination with nature and woodwork since he became a carpenter and furniture maker. He explores his love of nature through the wood material with its endless, varied, and fascinating material, its colour, texture and grain of the knots combining to create a unique beauty for each piece. Within this world of wood, images magically emerge. He uses the wood to explore its practical and creative potential.

Dom Hanley is showing his art as part of a creative reawakening after being dormant for many years. His work tries to embrace a variety of approaches; both abstract and figurative. Dom feels he is on a new journey, always discovering more about art; having said, “It’s like learning a new language, there is always more to learn (2009).”
