Exhibition "Hooray Henley!" Online

A selection from "Hooray Henley!" the RGA 87th Annual Exhibition 2017

Swans on the Thames Feeding Frenzy Slipway

Swans on the Thames
By Hilary James
Acrylic on canvas card
42 x 52cm

I’ve been working on this first painting for several months, reworking it many times. It now has several layers of paint.


 

Feeding Frenzy
by Hilary James
Acrylic on linen board
30 x 30cm

By contrast this smaller piece took just three hours. It’s in a different style to the first painting. I’ve tried different approaches in an attempt to capture the fleeting movement of the graceful, elegant yet immensely powerful birds.

Henley Fawn

Beached Regatta! Two Fours makes Eight

A lovely old boat ends its days beached at the waters edge. The sun sets dramatically behind clouds. This composition is made exclusively using a collage of coloured and printed paper pieces.

 

 

Regatta!

Mixed media composition, combining painting, printing and collage to achieve the effect of boats moving fast across the waves, in an attempt to win their class in the 'Regatta'

 

 

Two Fours makes Eight
By Carole Stephens

A picture of things happening on the water and on the riverside at Henley. The rowers out practising in Fours and Eights, a couple and their dog exercising, the floating detritus on the water and at the waters edge shown reflected in the sky above the scene.
Collage and print here combined to make the image.

(Conversation) after the picnic, Henley-on-Thames City at night Park

(Conversation) after the picnic, Henley-on-Thames
by Liz Real

 


 

City at night
by Liz Real
Mixed media (paper collage and paint)

This piece (which has nothing to do with Henley!) was my response to a view
in my local park in Caversham. However as I worked on it, I somehow adopted
an expressionist style so that in the end it has a universality rather than
being attached to a specific place.


 


Park
by Liz Real
Mixed media (print, paper collage and machine stitching)

This small abstract work is a composition of simple lino blocks (printed on
handmade paper) brought together with collage, overprinting and machine
stitching.

Rowan Ruth Isis

Rowan
By Jenny Fay
Oil on Linen
30 x 40cm

This year I am submitting two simple 'head and shoulders' portraits to the RGA exhibition. "Rowan" is a painting of my three year old godson looking wide-eyed and innocently curious. With his auburn hair as a starting point, I have chosen to make the palette about the tension between the complementary colours red and green. I like the interplay between the gentle colour transitions on his face and the strong blocks of colour that describe his red T-shirt and the green foliage.


 

Ruth
By Jenny fay
Oil on Linen
30 x 40cm

“Ruth" is a portrait of a lovely young woman whose fresh-faced youthfulness is balanced by an expression that implies a depth and maturity beyond her years. As with the painting of Rowan, the coppery tints in her hair are set against a green background but this time the green is a subtle sage with the aim of producing an aura of calm contemplation.


Isis Searching The Reeds For Her Murdered Lover
by Lou Jessop

I am entering this piece of textile work, Isis Searching The Reeds For Her Murdered Lover. It illustrates the Egyptian goddess Isis, helped by Anubis, gathering together the body parts of Osiris in order to reconstruct him so he can enter the afterlife. Made with recycled knitwear and hand stitching in wool.
