Gallery 21 are so proud to announce that we have now been appointed by Karen Welsh to exclusively represent her work for the Wiltshire area.
Karen’s work will be permanently represented in the gallery at all times.
” After four years of searching and negotiating, I am very excited to bring you this top collected abstract artist to the our gallery for all to see in a setting they so deserve. I have been looking at Karen’s work for some time now with a view to represent her in our High Street gallery. Clearly the time is now right for Karen Welsh to take that next huge step in her artistic career and let someone else do the behind the scenes work, enabling her to solely focus on her new collections. I for one am looking forward to see where this journey will take her. Definitely an artist of note and surely worth adding to your collection” – Trevor Horswell, Gallery 21 Curator.
”I think of my artworks, past and present, as an unfinished diary of my personal reaction to the landscape around me. Moving gradually from representation to abstraction, the shapes and colours I once painted as I saw them are now painted as I feel them.
I mark the canvas with charcoal then layer and evolve the work by carefully placing tints and tones of colour to keep a balance. In this way, I create a sense of movement and space with elements of tranquility. I aim to remove the recognisable, to leave an instinctive feel, provoking thought and understanding of a moment, place or emotion.” – K Welsh
