Thumbs up EXHIBITION OF PAINTINGS BY SARA ALLAN, Koycegiz

EXHIBITION OF PAINTINGS BY SARA ALLAN
Sara Allan
Sara has regularly exhibited in London and New York, but this is her first exhibition in Turkey, to be held in Kalkan (sorry, not Koycegiz as previously posted) .

George Melley said of her work, "From a tangle of lines, executed at great speed, offering no hint of the finished form, she then applies brilliant and surprising colour, using the lines as a form of scaffolding. She used pure colour. She favours large canvasses. What is truly surprising is the certainty, the feeling, as in nature, that each picture is inevitable, true, complete in itself. Her art flows out of her, vibrant, quivering with energy." George Melly, critic, writer and lecturer on art history, 2002.

The exhibition will be at Kalkan Kultur Evi. It begins on Monday 22 May at 6.30pm with an opening cocktail and continues until Friday 2 June

Re: EXHIBITION OF PAINTINGS BY SARA ALLAN, Koycegiz

Some of Sara's paintings there, Jaycey. She built her reputation with still lifes, landscapes and decorative art and then diverged into abstracts, but the way she paints is very individual. She did a presentation at one of our WOW! meetings and demonstrated how she "flows" into her art. I also have a video of how she approaches her work which is very interesting.

Interesting Steve, I could never get into Picasso – Dali and Kandinsky more up my street.

And you can keep your pics of cows in a field or bowls of flowers – take a photo instead, no originality or imagination there

Exclamation Re: Amendment: EXHIBITION OF PAINTINGS BY SARA ALLAN, Koycegiz

Sorry everyone! I thought this was in Koycegiz but it's in Kalkan! Have corrected the event and hope everyone picks it up!

Like yourself Steve with Picasso I had first to be educated on Dali.

I was in Abu Dhabi years ago and there was an art exhibition at the Hilton, being at a loose end I wandered in and found I was the only visitor. The lady presenter spent an hour showing me around and told me that she was Dali’s secretary before he died. He had left her all his unsold works and sketches – truly a revelation.

She also told me to beware of investing in Dali as his work was widely copied …
