'Enjoyment of Colour' - From Landscape to Floral to Abstract. A Retrospective by Rita Banks.

Staffordshire artist Rita Banks last exhibited at the museum 20 years ago and we are delighted to welcome her back with a collection of her paintings from throughout her career. Her early paintings focussed on landscapes, after which her real interest in colour developed, leading her to begin painting semi-abstract forms of flowers. From this her paintings became more abstract although they are based in some reality.  Rita epxeriments in doodling and using her tablet (a la David Hockney) as a sketch book for ideas.

The exhibition is mainly about the enjoyment of painting, the pleasure it gives to the artist and the pleasure it gives to the viewer.
