Days Like This is a two female show by painters Elizabeth Power and Lucy Smallbone and is a celebration of their ability to transport viewer

Elizabeth Power's and Lucy Smallbone's paintings immerse us in harmonious sea-side views, peaceful interiors, and colourful landscapes. Days Like This seeks to encourage visitors to indulge in their works and let themselves be transported to worlds that oscillate between the real and the imaginary. This exhibition will display dream-like interpretations of long summer days that have either been painted from memory or the imagination.

Taking inspiration from Henri Matisse, one of the most influential artists of the 20th century, painters Elizabeth Power and Lucy Smallbone are known for their use of vibrant colours and simple forms — similar to the French artist — as well as for their peaceful, summery subject matters.

‘What I dream of is an art of balance, of purity and serenity, devoid of troubling or depressing subject matter … A soothing, calming influence on the mind, something like a good armchair which provides relaxation from physical fatigue.’

— Henri Matisse, 1908

The exhibition runs from Friday 8th to Sunday 31st of July at 99 Projects, 99 Chamberlayne Road, London, NW10 3ND.

About Lucy Smallbone: 

Lucy Smallbone is a recent graduate from the Slade School of Fine Art Master's program who specialises in modern landscape painting. Her work looks at the merging of fictional and real space, and how stories and our memories can affect and alter our view of a place. Picture plains tilt upwards and vivid colours grow across the surface consuming it, leaving the landscapes uncertain of whether they are forming or falling apart.  This feeling of never truly having access to the landscape is meant to reflect something that is felt in moments of the sublime in nature. 

Smallbone is a recipient of such prizes as the Haworth trust grant (2011), the David Balladie travel prize (2009) and travelled to Chernobyl thanks to the Duveen Travel Prize (2016). 

 

 

About Elizabeth Power: 

Elizabeth Power graduated from the University of the Arts London in 2010 but has long since explored an expressive use of bold colour to capture the compelling beauty of her landscapes. Bursting with colour and energy, Elizabeth Power’s paintings exude a warmth and vibrancy. Based in St Leonards on Sea, UK, Power’s work has a colour palette rich in coral pinks, forest greens and cool blues. 

Drawing inspiration from colourists such as Matisse, Hockney and Tal R, Power’s loose and free abstraction takes this to the next level.Power has been featured by the likes of British Vogue, The Royal Academy of Arts, Heals, The London Design Festival, John Lewis, Itsu, Artsy, Delphian Gallery, Art For Charity Collective, Art On A Postcard, The Auction Collective, Print Club London and Hancock Gallery.Power co-hosts The Artfully Podcast (rated in GQ’s top 50 podcasts for 2021), which covers news stories, gossip, and revisiting art history you thought you knew, or always wished you did.
