MilModa Art was created by Merseyside born and bred Michelle Linger, who qualified in Art and Design from Wirral Art School and then continued with her studies in Liverpool obtaining a BA hons in Art History from Liverpool John Moores University. She has over 20 years experience working in the art world and wanted to create a touring gallery that could be appreciated not just in a static location, but by people from all over the country at chosen venues. Michelle comments. “All works are exceptional, original pieces that will look en vogue not only today but also in many years time.
Over the years she has built up a strong working relationship with a wide range of artists, locally, nationally and internationally. She also supports and displays emerging North-West artists, many of whom will have new pieces on display, including prize winning, semi abstract emerging local painter Kathy Little.
Local artist Jacqui Chapman paints abstract canvases. Her homeland, South Africa creates a passion for the production of abstract canvas in oils and her observation of the African coastline, which recalls a feeling of loss and strong emotions in her works. A few miles down the road lives Margaret Ransome, another artist who has just been awarded the honour of Joint First Prize in the National Arts Competition for her abstract painting. The international abstract artist Robert Hart works in oils and has a passion to develop strong landscape observations, combined with weather, light, mood and colours blended together to focus on a particular event.
Margaret Ransome explains. “My paintings in the MilModa exhibitions were all created in my Merseyside based studio. I work in acrylic due to the fast drying time of the paint, as once I am in a creative mood I shut myself away and the paint just seems to flow. My first piece ‘Unfolding Drama’ shows the meaning of strength and moving forward, which is displayed in the loops of loose brush marks I have made. Within the layering of paint, subtle colours and shapes emerge”. She continues “‘Basement Blues’ is influenced by my love for music, the rock and roll years and the colours and atmosphere, whilst my last work ‘Down-Town Lofts’ is more landscape abstract work”.
Today, as an established artist, Fleur Deakin’s original one-off works are in high demand. Her unique canvas paintings are created with vivid colours and have a stunning glass like effect. She also considers herself an eco-friendly artist as her works incorporate various materials within her paintings, ranging from gold leaf to lace and recycled palette paint. Everything she collects has a use, including memories of locations visited. For the viewer to appreciate these works, they are a must to be seen in reality.
Fleur says “As I consider myself to be an eco-friendly artist, I think the more we can recycle objects discarded not only cuts down the landfill building up all over the world and damaging our wildlife and nature for future generations, but we can create an object of beauty by recycling and creating a painting that can be enjoyed. Many elements in my paintings focus on the observation of Botany from many trips both here and abroad”.
Also showing in the ‘Here and Now’ exhibition will be many highly regarded other national and emerging artists with works including abstract, semi-abstract, landscape, seascapes and floral. All the above, mixed with other extraordinary stunning quality artists’ talent is a rare opportunity to purchase such exceptional perfection.
