                                                                     PETE HOIDA - NEW PAINTINGS
11 July to 21 July 2019

New works by the Gloucestershire-based contemporary artist Pete Hoida (b. 1944) will be shown at the APT Gallery this month. These large-scale abstract works (some are over 3 metres wide) are bold, colourful and sensual explorations of the expressive potential of painting. Often inspired by the landscape which surrounds his studio, but also by his travels, these are images which strongly evoke a sense of light and space.  The surfaces are rich and textured, using a beguiling variety of techniques to achieve compositions of great intensity and depth.

         Crucible   97 x 219 cm   Apr 2011 – Dec 2018

Born in Birkenhead, Pete Hoida started out as a poet, before turning to painting, and to the development of the robust abstractions which have preoccupied him for more than fifty years. His work has received critical acclaim from, amongst others, Mel Gooding, Peter Davies, Estelle Lovatt and Mathew Collings.

The exhibition at APT Gallery will show approximately twenty paintings. On the final day (Sunday 21 July) there will be a screening of a short documentary on Pete Hoida and his work entitled: Black Severn Angel, a film by Alasdair Ogilvie.

11 July to 21 July 2019
Opening Times: Thursday to Sunday, 12noon to 5pm

Closing Event: Sunday 21 July, 2pm to 4pm
