SUSIE RAY ORIGINALS - THE UK'S FIRST COPYIST ART EXHIBITION

SUSIE RAY ORIGINALS - THE UK'S FIRST COPYIST ART EXHIBITION

This summer, Susie Ray Originals has opened the UK's first copyist art gallery and exhibition in Padstow. The eagerly awaited exhibition, exclusively opened its doors earlier in the month, and is the first of its kind in the UK - pulling together some of Susie Ray's most finest paintings.

A pioneer of the copyist art movement, Susie Ray originally came to the fore in 1980’s boom, and with the recent renewed interest in copyist painting has been forced out of retirement. Focusing on reproductions of masterworks from the greats, such as Monet, Manet, Sisley and Renoir, the new exhibition captures the UK's growing interest and demand for copyist painting. Far from churning out cheap fakes and forgeries, ‘Susie Ray Originals' are painstakingly created. Each painting is thoroughly researched, the correct size and canvas selected and primed, aged and executed in oil paint to ensure not only the look, but also the texture and feel of the painting, is as close to the original as possible. Susie’s exceptional eye for recreating the techniques and signature details used by notorious artists of the past is attributable not only to her natural talent, but also her training as a scientific illustrator rather than a fine artist. This skill enables her to take an almost forensic approach to her painting, resulting in what are widely regarded as some of the most convincing copies in the world. For you chance to explore the intriguing yet intricate world of copyist painting, pop by to Susie Ray Originals Gallery in Padstow. Entry is free, and for information or to request a private consultation with Susie please contact the gallery in Padstow, Cornwall on Tel: 01841 533 598 or log on to www.susierayoriginals.co.uk for opening times and details of how to contact Susie direct.
