Press Release PR, Agora Gallery, New York
'Lizzy Forrester conducts an orchestra of resounding colours with each stroke of her brush. Her luminous and higly textured canvases relfect a deep admiration for the Impressioist painters, placing a strong emphasis on the interplay of light on surfaces. But, Forrester's impetus for painting lies much deeper than a simple desire to render the rays of light as they cascade upon a placid pond or field of poppies. In fact, like a stream of consciousness, poem or impromptu musical composition, Forrester's works serve as expressions of the artist's innermost thoughts and emotions. Her stunning landscape paintings resonate with a sense of calm and happiness, evidencing the artist's strongly influential spirituality. Her artwork serves primarily as a communicative tool, created by impulse and an inexplicable urge to paint, but also expresses the self-taught artist's innate understanding of colour theory and sophisticated eye for spatial arrangements.'

'..with this money you pay we are able to drill a well for water, (including the purchase and fitting of a pump etc.,) to bring water to a village in Uganda, Africa'
On my website (type in the following link) you will find photographs of the well itself, the 'Well Caretaker' the villagers, the village etc.,
The wonderful Photographs speak for themselves.

A little about the artist... :-)
Born in the UK, but resident in the Balearic Islands Spain for the last 20 years, Lizzy Forrester the artist decided to finally give up full time employment and 'dedicate myself fully to painting'.
I recently picked up brushes, paints and easel follwing a spiritual retreat in the summer of 2006, it goes without saying there is a true passion.
Self taught (apart from the basics learnt in school) although with help during childhood, at home as art was always 'around': Dad was, and still is, an accomplished amateur artist, painting in oils: He always encouraged his kids. Despite working professionally in teaching and in other areas over the years, I 've always harboured a great passion for Art, studying Fine Art, Architecture & Interior Design at home, in my own time: A huge all consuming fascination and interest in the great artist's themselves, especially their works, finally surfaced, and firmly took root after a career break in the summer of 2006. Holidays had often been largely organised around major Art Gallery visits and important exhibitions, but since that spiritual retreat, I found I could no longer ignore the nagging creative needs.'
Preferrences vary - for style, impressionism, realism and abstract; Main themes being lanscape, seascape, cityscpae ... - nature generally. A distinctive spirituality prevades her work, very much the influence of her own spirituallity, work and growth. She achieves a certain balance and harmony in colour and perspective no matter how strident or strong the subject matter or her interpretation of it may be, and there is always a haunting softness.
'I paint to Classical Music and have created paintings to accompany Feng Shui studies: (work is prepared through colour and/or theme associated with energies and / or elements, to balance a certain environment). There is always I hope a subtle energy that reaches out and communicates with the observer. '
