SISTERS Zana Juppenlatz and Branwen Lloyd have previously exhibited together in Holland and, as a result of a kind invitation from the Coldstream Gallery, decided to collaborate in a new joint exhibition.
Reflecting their very different interests and styles, the exhibition presents figurative and allegorical themes.
Influence on Northumberland-based Zana’s work include the colour, forms and atmosphere of the places in which she has lived and travelled, the work of JMW Turner and the Scottish Naturalists, especially the ‘Glasgow Boys” Arthur Melville, Joseph Crawhall, James Paterson, George Henry, John Lavery and James Guthrie.
She works in oil, watercolour and pastel and delights in capturing the effects of light on the landscape through the use of transparent layers of colour.
Her sister Branwen studied at the Fine Art Academy of Venice (Accademia delle Belle Arti di Venezia) in Italy and since graduating, she has continued to live and work in Venice, exhibiting both there and in Holland.
Her work includes portraiture and still life, allegory and legend, narrative, landscape, wildlife and illustration.
The exhibition runs until Saturday, October 29.
