But is it Art?

July 21st Talk

KYRLE Probus Club members were quite convinced it was, after seeing and listening to member Brian Wozencroft’s recent talk and presentation entitled ‘But Is It Art?...’

Brian said that he trained as an engineer and draftsman, but painting had been a hobby of his from an early age. He started painting in oils in his early 20s, but then work took over and it was not until he retired that he took it up again.

He explained that he painted from his own photographs and he showed members some of the photographs and the paintings produced from these photos. He also showed how he used a compilation of photographs to produce an original painting.

Brian showed paintings produced from pictures taken in Northern Cyprus, Ravello on the Amalfi Coast, Canada, including Tofino on the west coast of Vancouver Island and Nova Scotia on the other side of the country; La Rochelle and the Rhone Valley in France and nearer home, the Snape Maltings in Suffolk, the West Pembrokeshire Coast and Langland Bay in South Wales and finally of course a view of Ross-on-Wye.
