Exhibition of contrasts at Lauderdale House by Highgate artist
A Highgate artist has teamed up with a friend to produce an exhibition showing off their very different styles of painting at a Lauderdale House.
Abstract painter Michèle Janes, who was born at the Whittington Hospital and has lived in Highgate for more than 25 years, is showing her work alongside that of friend Anna Angeli at the venue in Waterlow Park, Highgate Hill, until Sunday (December 8).
The Exhibition of Contrasts will display just how different these artists are, Ms Janes with her abstract work and Greek-born Ms Angeli with her traditional paintings on wooden panels using gold leaf.
Ms Janes spins paint using centrifugal forces to produce her abstract pieces, while Ms Janes uses 14th century methods to achieve her painting style.
Lauderdale House director Katherine Ives said: “It is a fascinating exhibition. We have two artists who are friends but who work with such different and contrasting styles.
