FIRST LIMITED EDITION PRINTS
OVERLAP is a collection of 33 mixed media on board works by Alexandra Weston
“these artworks were created continuously and in no particular order. Numerous techniques were layered to produce intense texture, colour was added delicately and removed aggressively and vice versa. Each piece branched off on its own journey while still overlapping or having common ground with the rest of the collection. Most of the pieces are smaller in size, to me, nothing is more powerful than a beautifully hung artwork that holds its own and doesn't rely on volume to do so’.
THE OVERLAP EXHIBITION
Alexandra Weston's work is a marvel.
From a distance her large scale pieces appear to be pattern… on closer inspection, you will find incredible layers and colour combinations in meticulously placed, painterly dots.
Commonly working on perspex and for the very first time releasing limited edition prints, it is a treat to view this Lyttelton artists work in person!

VEFA FINE ART
The SQUARECONFETTI series of original artwork is influenced by daily scenes where objects are en masse; a street crowd, a cluster of buildings, displayed produce for example. Each piece represents how objects interact with each other, complimenting, contrasting and layering to create a collective image.
The method of applying paint to the reverse side of an acrylic sheet results in the first brush strokes being most obvious and reducing from there, quite the opposite to traditional painting. The artworks have a clean, simple two dimensional finish that draws the viewer in.
