Get to know your Art Consultant's at Westover Gallery by finding out a little more about them and their favourite artwork. Every month we will be showcasing a favourite artist or artwork from each staff member and to kick things off, we're starting with Sales Director Ally's choice of 'Blue Jungle' by Kristjana S Williams! This is what she thinks about her favourite artist:
'I’ve always loved Kristjana’ s work since the day I first saw it in London, many years ago. I then followed her in social media before we took the plunge to contact her from Westover Gallery and see if she would like to be one of our gallery artists. Needless to say, I was absolutely thrilled when she said yes! We were lucky enough to have Kristjana here in the gallery in May 2019 for a solo exhibition, as she is Icelandic, we even had Icelandic inspired canapes made by my amazing friend, who happens to be Icelandic and chef! Kristjana was a pleasure to have at the gallery and the exhibition was a huge success.'
'There is something really captivating about this original ‘Blue Jungle’ by Kristjana, every time you look at it, there something new to be seen, nothing is what it first seems, something intriguing and something very fascinating! The 3D elements create shadows and depth and I can get lost in it every time I look at it. I’m a sucker for colour and animals so the two combined in this artwork grab my attention, especially the cat with the headdress on, that’s my kind of cat!'
We can definitely understand why this is Ally's favourite piece in the Gallery, and we're surprised that she hasn't bought it yet herself! Pop in to Westover Gallery for a cup of coffee or glass of bubbly and see this stunning artwork for yourself today!
