Pastiche

Pastiche

Recent paintings by Marc Jones, Marie McGowan and June Lornie. We have the wood reliefs, paintings and collages of Marc Jones, the abstract paintings of Marie McGowan and June Lornie’s largely colourful and dramatic pieces.

The exhibition, a pastiche of works apparently so different in style and technique, highlights the diverse ways in which an artist works to turn an initial concept into a finished piece of art.

Just click on any image below and you will see it full size in our viewer.


The exhibititon opened to the public on the 13th August and will run to the 29th August.

Open Tuesday to Saturday 12 til 4pm.


Marie McGowan

My interest in abstract art began after seeing William George Scott's "Blue Abstract", a John Moores prize winner, at the Walker Art Gallery in the early 1960s.

After leaving I attended several art courses and began painting again. My work usually starts from abstract, non visible ideas, or purely from the use of colour. Specific themes, such as the effects of global warming and environmental pollution also influence me.

I have exhibited in several galleries most frequently here at Liverpool Academy of Arts and I must thank June for help and encouragement - and occasional nagging to get myself into gear and do some work.

June Lornie

June Lornie

As a child I was known as 'Sizzy Lizzie". Other children used pencil and crayons but I would only use scissors - cutting out the shapes I wanted - they ended up as the main tools of my trade. I worked for many years as a theatrical costumiere making clothes for theatre, TV and cabaret stars such as Les Dennis, Bob Carolgees, Stuart Hall, Gary Glitter and even boxer Prince Naseem.

I love bright colours, textures, fabric, gold leaf, etc. all of which go back to my Show Business experiences. I add acrylic and pastel to bring the works together in what I always call pastiche.
