Event Details

Cancelled due to lockdown.


Barbara Leidl Skingle presents the exhibition “A Show For The Ghosts” at The Gardens Gallery, 17th – 23rd February 2021.

In painting, things surface.

I am a painter based in Stroud, in the South West of England, working with traditional oil painting techniques. I use a limited palette of earth pigments. I concentrate mostly on portraits of my family and friends, as I am interested in what comes through when I know the subject very well. I have had to learn to work from photographs, as I don’t often have ready access to my models. But I have no interest in replicating a photograph, so my imagination and intuition around the subject is forced to come into play, I hope, in some interesting ways.
