PARADISE: YVONNE COOMBER SOLO SHOW 9th-17th APRIL ART5 Gallery is delighted to announce Paradise, a solo exhibition of work by sought-after Devon-based artist Yvonne Coomber! This highly-anticipated annual event is the perfect introduction to spring, showcasing an exclusive new collection of the artist’s signature glittering floral paintings, alongside her dreamy landscapes and an exciting new collection of designer cushions. After gaining a degree in Philosophy and Literature at Brighton University, Yvonne went on to study Fine Art in Sussex, broadening her artistic ability and immersion into the world of painting. Over the last decade, she has established herself as a highly collectable artist, with her paintings becoming instantly recognisable worldwide. Yvonne’s love of nature and the English countryside deeply influences her work, often painting in the depths of the Devonshire meadows to draw immediate inspiration from the picturesque surroundings. She captures the chaotic yet harmonious energy within nature, whilst bringing warmth and joy to the canvas. Yvonne beautifully blends various materials to create layer upon layer of tactile texture, adding another dimension to her captivating paintings. The glitter, reminiscent of early morning ART5 Gallery 5 Bartholomews Brighton, BN1 1HG dew, the vibrant colours conjuring the kaleidoscopic palette of the countryside, and the delicate scattering of flowers come together organically in her unique artistic vision. ‘We’re delighted to be hosting an annual solo exhibition of acclaimed artist Yvonne Coomber, after the remarkable successes of her previous solo shows in Sussex with us. Her paintings are increasingly soughtafter, and we’re proud to have been the foremost exhibitor of Yvonne’s work in the South for the past decade.’ Gallery manager Melissa Luckhurst remarks. Visit this exclusive exhibition and lose yourself in Yvonne’s charming vision of nature as a joyful meadow where dreams unfold! Paradise is a free exhibition running from 9th to 17th April. 01273 774222 /artatfive @artatfive @art5_gallery
