This month’s art at the Eastbourne Under Ground Theatre brings an exhibition in provocative contrast with that in February.

From the bold and dynamic the art moves to the soft and serene with the gentle watercolours from the brush of Chris Liddiard.

Chris, from Rushlake Green, enjoys views from his studio over the Weald to the Downs above Eastbourne.

It is these views with their ever-changing colours from green to misty greys and sometimes barely any colour at all that shape his work.

Trained in Southend, at the School of Art and Design, Chris has shown works in the Royal Watercolour Society, London.

In his paintings you are likely to see the influence of many masters of the art. Look for WM Turner, Georgio Morandi, EW Shepard and Ellsworth Kelly.

Chris enjoys pencil-sketching old and interesting buildings, making collages of ‘things he finds on his walks’ and also has illustrated the children’s book Rufus And The Rain.

The exhibition at the Under Ground will last until March 3o and Chris Liddiards’s art will be on show and on sale every Friday and Saturday from 10am to 4pm.
