A Journey with Elephants
I was lucky enough to visit Zambia in 2013 and was very touched by seeing some of the endangered African animals. The artwork in this exhibition was inspired by my trip and shows my creative journey trying to depict elephants and my feelings towards them and their endangerment. During this time I have enjoyed experimenting with different materials, tools and surfaces. The results are a response to what I have seen and felt and are not meant to be a perfect depiction of an elephant. Artwork of a few other birds and animals are included in the exhibition.
Further information and examples of my work can be found on my website www.marionbalback.co.uk

In celebrating 25 years of art by members of Knightsbridge Art Club, our exhibition will focus on significant events of the last 25 years in the north-east. Alongside this, there will be a wide range of paintings which display the results of the development of the club and members' artistic skills over that period.

Inspiration for my digital art comes from my fascination with the mysterious world of the Geisha. My creations are heavily influenced by manga and especially by some of the artists of the Superflat movement which can be seen in some of the more surreal images. I adore the evanescent, impermanent, fleeting beauty and simplicity of the woodblock style and I try to recreate the intensity and colours used in these pictures in my own artwork.
