Muswell Hill ­ on Sea!

The N22 Open Studios in Wood Green 9-11 November show Muswell Hill as you have never seen it before.

Artist Neale Marriott’s paintings on glass recreate Muswell Hill as a seaside resort.

 

 

Neale said

” I’m always looking for the connections between the different perspectives and personal stories that are bound up in our experience of familiar places.”

By re-imagining these different places, experiences and people, I hope to communicate the experience of these familiar things, but from a different & changing perspective. I love painting on glass, it has an ephemeral quality as light  travels through it and the paint is built in thin layers on the front and back of the glass which shimmers in different ways depending on the light around it. The separation between the layers creates a shifting perspective as you move around the pieces which makes them come alive.

 

Manoj Ambasna, Director of the Chocolate Factory, said:

“Neale is one of around 120 artists and makers whose work can be seen at the Chocolate Factory Open Studios, Clarendon Road, N22 6XJ.

With work starting at just a few pounds there are lots of gift ideas for sale but also artist’s like Neale who offer work for collectors or people who are looking for something unique for their homes.”

The event is now in its 15th year.  In 2011 around 5,000 people attended the Open Studios weekend.
