PATRICK HILLARD & TOM SHARP EXHIBITION, 12-18 OCTOBER, 2022
Artists Patrick Hillard and Tom Sharp will be joining forces this October to present their exhibition of paintings and upcycled sculptures.
Patrick has been painting since childhood, but only full time since leaving his day job as a builder. For most of his career his work has been very traditional. However in 2013 he turned to abstract work.
In the years since his work has evolved to become the textured and highly colour saturated work you see now. Unusually he generally starts with a title first, often stealing from songs or lines from poetry. He considers his work to be primarily decorative, sometimes with a humorous play on words, but he shies away from anything with a “message”.
Tom Sharp creates wondrous assemblages from upcycled plastic. This exhibition will feature his startling new work: ‘Come and Get It (if You Dare)’.
Patrick and Tom’s exhibition will run from 12-18 October (times TBC) at West Acre Gallery.
