On the 26th of August 2018 I want back to the RWA as part of my Summer exploration into the Arts and saw the In Relation exhibition. In Relation focused on the work of nine British Couples who transformed modern art. There were some stunning pieces in the collecting, there were a wide variety of mediums on display from oils to graphite. There were some striking sketches and paintings of young men and women which had some amazing details.
There were also some beautiful landscapes that were often snapshots from a typical room, a garden, a kitchen e.t.c but then they were glamorised using popping colours and adding abstract objects. This created a really unique perspective on day to day scenes. These rich colours merged to create some stunning pieces of artwork which I am not surprised at all were included in this collection of art that transformed modern British Art. The style of these paintings were unique and abstract yet so relatable on these typical real life scenes.
I also really loved some of the landscapes which again were abstract using a broad range of tones ranging from pale to bold colours. Items like boats and cars seem to be portrayed in a fresh light using this range of techniques. There was also some fabric paintings that were beautiful. A house constructed out of a range of fabrics suing lace and buttons was particularly beautiful. This is an amazing exhibition and you can truly feel the arts inspiration flooding in bucket loads of these paintings so for budding artists it as an absolute must see exhibition that truly demonstrates the roots of modern day British art and I guarantee you will have learnt at least 5 new things when you visit. it's educational but so fun to visit!
