Souls on fire in Canning Town for Olympics exhibition
PUBLISHED: 08:00 04 August 2012
An exhibition of paintings using “the human form as inspiration for stories of the soul” will be on show in Canning Town during the Olympics.
The Rosetta Windows Gallery will host Soul on Fire by artist Steve Marriott until September 8.
He aims to represent themes such as the undead, unrequited love, pain and submission, and freedom.
Mr Marriott said: “Some of the ideas behind the work were inspired by stories and writers that have meant something to me.
“I wanted to translate the feelings and emotional resonation from those works into my own artistic language.
“Others have emerged as I worked on them, the original intent changing as the ‘character’ that formed during the process took on a life and soul of its own.”
The exhbition will open at 26B Rathbone Market on August 2 at 6pm.
