The Big Chill Out Exhibition by Christine Dymond
Christine Dymond, an Artist and teacher currently based in Devon, has long been fascinated by the patterns and motifs of decorative art. Her first inspiration was Celtic Design, but her many trips to India and South Asia in recent years have given her a particular interest in temple and palace art.
Using her extensive knowledge of decorative motifs from many different cultures, Chris has created a series of intricate designs for colouring. Her début collection was published in 1995, making it possibly the first adult colouring book on the market. It was produced in large format, with the idea the work would be cut out and framed. This book has recently been republished under the new title, The Big Chill Out Colouring Book (Search Press)
Examples of Chris’ exquisite designs, coloured by the artist using a variety of media, are now available as high-quality limited edition prints which are in this exhibition. The exhibition will be open 11am to 4:30pm every day except Mondays when the gallery is closed.
