Starting with a series of paintings (in cut-paper) for an exhibition in Sidmouth of children enjoying playing on the beach and women sunbathing and riding the waves, a new series is evolving featuring strong women together. The beach series extended during lockdown evolving from memories of halcyon days of freedom at the seaside: a celebration of maturity and harking back to a time now forgotten. “Those were the days…”

The Beach Series has been extended. Starting as a series of images for Fiona’s www.art4kids.gallery, memories of childhood evolved and the triptych of works featuring modern women styled with a heritage sensibility, referencing Modigliani and inspired by traditional British postcards from the 1900s, formed the basis of a very popular and successful exhibition in Sidmouth, Devon and selected images are now available in a canvas print.
Fiona is extending and updating this series under the title:
Bygone Beach Days
Three new original cut-paper paintings with a vintage take on contemporary womanhood, challenging, independent and free of labels. Raw and without the gloss of the advertising world or compliance with fashionista dictates, these real women emerge from the sea with their strength intact enjoying their freedom.
The three canvas prints above plus the three new images comprise the new exhibition: Bygone Beach Days.
