I will also be exhibiting all my Ballet inspired works at the Mill Arts Centre in Banbury, Oxfordshire during the month of April.
I am a member of the Banbury Art Cooperative who exhibit in the Church Lane Gallery each month in Banbury, Oxforshire.
I am a member of Leamington Studio Artists who exhibit at East Lodge in Jephson Gardens in Leamington Spa, Warwickshire.
Gilbert Csecs had not painted for 25 years and in 2012 finished the “Sitting Ballerina” painting that was started in 1987 having lost the original photograph which was found. His interest in muscle tones began as a child with Marvel Comic characters.
Since then Gilbert has experienced a rich vein of creativity. He is a member of the Leamington Studio Artists and of the Bloxham Art Group, tutored by Claire Winfield. She has introduced the group to new techniques which he has found truly inspirational and many of the new works are the result of exploring and experimenting with new mediums, styles and more recently has been using palette knives and toothbrushes to great effect. Some of his most recent works have used natural rainfall to create wonderful effects and he says “this is the artist and nature working in perfect harmony”
Early works were inspired by Ballet and the world of dance but Gilbert has now progressed a series of work on Banbury in Oxfordshire, Appledore and Instow in North Devon. Experimentation lead him into a “Cosmic” series of work demonstrated with the bright colours and particularly rich purples and blues. A lot of this work began to feature winter trees. Gilbert said he is inspired by trees because, “ they transcend the generations and seem to live forever”. Inevitably, looking up at trees, encouraged an appreciation of skies, and Gilbert has been working on his “Blue Sky Banbury” series of paintings.
Gilbert currently has his prints and cards of Banbury in the Banbury Museum Shop. He has been participating in the North Oxfordshire Artweeks for the last four years. You can find out more and view his work on his facebook page Gilbert Csecs Art.
