 You are invited to the opening of Hay Hill Gallery’s double exhibition this autumn, featuring works by artists Natália Gromicho and Igor Tcholaria.

 Natália Gromicho
‘Through A Glass, Darkly’

Natália Gromicho’s highly pigmented glazes gloss the boundaries between figure and abstraction, creating shifts in focus and scale. The dialled tones range across her canvases from cool-eyed blues to fiery madder hues. The use of wet and dry brushwork adds to the subtle variations in mood- shiny as slick taillights in the rain, as grubby as the exhaust fumes that blacken the puddles. With a style as energetic as the Lisbon streets’ desiccating slogans and sunset red riots, it is easy to see the personal influence of this bright chaotic city on the artist.

Igor Tcholaria
'Nostalgia For The Present'

Igor Tcholaria’s Modigliani-esque technique is also concerned with the depiction of perception and reality. Revealing beauty in the everyday, the artist places porcelain-skinned women within heavily patterned backgrounds. Sooty eyes peer out from under flattened hats, their pale skirts and pantaloons billow out around them. The artist plays around with contrasts of volume, changing his mind between two and three dimensional effects, loud and soft colours. This push and pull creates a soothing optical illusion- we drift in and back out of imaginariums, stirred awake by more than a nod to those old masters who first inspired him.

Hay Hill Gallery also presents a sculpture collection which features works by Eleanor Cardozo, Nicola Godden, Richard L.Minns, Andy Cheese, Jamie McCartney, Ian Edwards, Gianfranco Meggiato, Alfonso & Massimiliano Cacchiarelli Principi, Oleg Prokofiev, and Palolo Valdés.
