PETAL, ANTHER, PEACE
The Jam Factory presents “Petal, Anther, Peace”, an exhibition of oil paintings and ink drawings by artist Araminta Blue.
Araminta is an early career artist due to begin a master of fine art at The Slade on completion of this exhibition. She graduated from The Ruskin School of Art in 2012 and has since exhibited regularly in London. This is her first solo exhibition to be held in Oxford.
This exhibition of oil paintings and ink drawings takes inspiration from the zen gardens of Kyoto. With a gentle colour palette, Araminta has cast rocks, plants and fabrics in a natural balance across the canvas.
Araminta works in London, whilst making regular source-material hoarding trips into nature - to colourful, vibrant countries such as Japan, Sri Lanka, Morocco and Iceland. In the studio she surrounds herself with an edited environment of imagery, but composes her scenes mainly from memory and instinct. With a style that treads the line between classical and contemporary, she gently abstracts her subjects with sinuous brushwork and emotive colour palette.
