Esther Brown is an international artist, who was born and raised in Japan and joins us in The Crescent Gallery for her latest exhibition that has been inspired by the concept of Eden.
Eden: an unspoilt natural paradise - a place that is elusive in our world, where habitats are constantly destroyed and species are endangered.
The artist draws the eye to the magnificence of birds by painting them as subjects of beauty and royalty in their own kingdoms.
Esther Brown completed a BA in Fine Art, worked as a print designer at Alexander McQueen and has won an award for her drawings. She works across mediums using oils, acrylics, spray paint and gold leaf to create depth and texture in her paintings.
We are delighted to welcome to The Crescent Gallery the talented Sharon Kelly as she presents Mind Fuel: an art project that has been inspired by endurance and ultra distance runners.
Focusing on athlete motivation; the emotional, mental and physical challenges, the artist interviewed a range of athletes, as well as bringing her own running experience to bear, in creating this multi-media work. Included in this exhibition will be work created as part of Sharon's engagement as Artist in Residence at the Belfast 24 HR Race, June 2018.
This innovative project brings together the artist's considerable art experience and passion for running as she explores the parallels between art and sport.
The exhibition is supported by Arts Council of Northern Ireland.
