Lot 230 - Paula MacArthur - Incomprehensible Treasure
Oil on paper
Signed on Verso
This auction is raising proceeds for St Wilfrid's Hospice Eastbourne
Paula MacArthur is a painter, trained at the Royal Academy & Turps Art Schools and was a John Moores Painting Prize winner in 1993. She exhibits nationally and internationally; and works from her studio in Rye, East Sussex.
The current focus of Paula’s work is crystals and jewels, these are explorations of colour and light, a contemporary response to Dutch 17th century Pronkstilleven painting - ostentatious still life. Solitary, precious stones are captured in the spotlight, displayed as icons which lure us in and quietly invite us to investigate the multifaceted associations we bring to these treasures.
