An exhibition by Lucia Para

Fri 3 May Fri 31 May

Fri 3rd May – Sun 31st May

Lucia Para is an Italian Artist who studied at the Fine Arts Academy in Florence. Her love for nature and landscape brought her to the Island, where she has lived since 2012.

The curiosity towards shape and her endless fascination about colour are at the core of this exhibition, which marks a significant stage of her research about flowers and plants.

This dialogue with nature started from observational drawings, where multiple studies in her sketchbooks allowed different layers of learning, progressively leaving behind the surface of the visible in search for the felt essence of the floral world.

Lucia thinks that this journey might end one day, in the land of abstraction.

The work on display is created using mixed media on board (or paper).

Lucia will be leading a workshop at Quay Arts called “Discover your Floral Self”,  based around this exhibition, where she will also show her process and studies from original drawings and illustrations.

Even a little money can make a big difference at Quay Arts

Did you realise that when you buy a cup of freshly ground barista coffee in our Café Bar, you are helping to support the cultural life of the Isle of Wight?

However, the generosity of our supporters goes beyond sales of food, drink and theatre tickets. Gifts of money, time, and even specific items make a huge difference to the amount of work we can do. Together, we can continue to enrich the lives of islanders and visitors with our fantastic programme of events.
