Each day is a journey of looking and experiencing nature, of how mother earth presents herself to the world. Marks left in the sand by the receding tide, sharp and clear, to deep gullies or smooth. Items thrown up by the tide, battered by storms. Different seaweed flowing in ribbons. The erosion of surfaces be they shells, rocks, driftwood or bone .

An intuitive process of making, and pinching of clay; my work is made using flattened coils of clay into which other materials are added to change the surface texture, clays and sands.  The work is pushed and pinched causing crators and holes.

Audio Described Exhibition

‘Painting Dance’, a new collection of pictures by Carl Chapple.

The exhibition at Ffin y Parc Gallery, Llanrwst runs from September 15th to October 6th.

Audio described tours will take place on Saturday 28th September at 11am and 3pm.

This is the first of two exhibitions. Wales Millennium Centre will play host later in the year, with further details to be announced shortly.

The audio tours will also feature invaluable insights from the artist himself. The inclusion of objects such as ballet shoes, brushes, oils, and the panels that Carl paints on, will be available to touch, feel and smell, giving a sense of the artistic process. The tours will be relaxed and conversational, lasting one to one and a half hours, and will be free to attend.

Carl has been working with Newport-based, international dance company Ballet Cymru since 2016, though the project leading to the current exhibitions began in December 2018.

As artist in residence, Carl has been given free rein to attend Ballet Cymru rehearsals and public performances,
following dancers and choreographers as they explore and develop new ideas, characters and narratives, and create new productions. This access has allowed the artist a unique opportunity to get to know the company and its partners, to engage with their creativity, and to produce new and original works on paper, panel and canvas.

The exhibitions will present pictures depicting Ballet Cymru dancers and others working with the company, including participants in its Pre-Professionals Programme, involving recent dance school graduates from around the world.
The Ffin y Parc exhibition will feature predominantly small to mid-sized paintings and drawings, in oil and charcoal. Some pictures are responses to passages of dance observed in the rehearsal studio – exploring moments both of stillness and of movement – whilst others reflect more collaborative approaches, as dancers and artist work more closely together, away from rehearsal or performance settings.

Entry to the exhibitions and audio tours is free. However, for the audio tours booking is essential. To book tickets, visit www.ticketsource.co.uk/carlchapple.

For more details, you can then click on Painting Dance Audio Tour. For any queries or further information, please contact Carl Chapple on 07585 907 051. Carl’s website is www.carlchapple.com.

Ffin y Parc Country House and Gallery in the Snowdonia National Park has quickly grown to become one of the most successful art galleries in Wales. The gallery is based in a lovely old Georgian house with large open rooms and hallways. Excellent home made food is available from the cafe.

The gallery is accessible from the A470 between Llanrwst and Betws y Coed with plenty of parking available on the grounds of the house. The drive to the gallery takes in the beauty of the area passing along the wide flat valley floor with steep wooded hills and occasional cliffs either side.

The gallery’s website address is welshart.net and the address is Ffin y Parc Gallery, Betws Road, Llanrwst, Conwy, LL26 0PT
The project is supported by Arts Council of Wales, and by partners Ballet Cymru, Ffin y Parc Gallery and Wales Millennium Centre.

We look forward to welcoming you!
