Appreciate the abstract?  Catch the strong lines and bold colours of the latest work from Paul John Kilshaw at his exhibition at the Link Gallery at Jersey Museum, which runs until the 13th November.

‘Emotional form – structure mood’ is a diary in canvas form for the local abstract artist who has used oil paint to explore his emotions and moods.  ‘I produce a series of images and explore their creative possibilities.  It’s still a voyage of discovery’.  Paintings are built up layer by layer with washes of oil and collage, overpainted and scraped back to give the surface of the picture rythmn and texture.   ‘I love underpainting, but once I start, I have to paint the whole canvas!  The time it takes me to complete a painting varies, sometimes I’ll finish one in 6 months, but they have been known to go on for years until I’m happy with them.’  Also available at the exhbition will be a series of limited edition books from Paul John Kilshaw, all signed by the artist.
