An Exhibition of Oil Paintings, Photographs and Mixed Media
Metro is thrilled to be supporting an exhibition of figurative and abstract images of India, London and Italy in an exhibition presenting photographs produced by John Pheasant, oil paintings by Suchi Chidambaram and jointly produced mixed media works which beautifully combine a photographic image and an oil painting to create a single image.
Suchi and John produced the exciting and innovative mixed media works using a variety of surfaces: fine art paper, canvas and metallic bases like aluminium and Dibond®. Using our Direct to Media printer John’s images were printed onto Dibond, creating an opportunity to combine the two artists’ contrasting approaches, styles and techniques. The resultant dynamic draws the viewer into the image and challenges the imagination.
Suchi, a London based painter born and raised in southern India, is fascinated by perspectives. Her interpretations of urban landscapes are typically not painted in situ but from memory: fragments of visual data mingling with subjective, emotional responses.
John, a photographer with a particular interest in land, cityscapes and portraits, relishes the technical and artistic challenge of using only natural light often in testing conditions, to capture his experiences of the places he visits and the people he meets.
