    terms Five Bar is a very large and impressive work five long bars of scintillating colour that fill a whole wall The effect of the blues greens oranges and reds is so mesmerising it is difficult to turn one s eyes away Then when one realises that these colours capture vertical as well as horizontal movement the effect becomes all the more dramatic I haven t seen anything quite like it Then this visual experience acquires even greater resonance when one learns what inspired it the artist s witnessing of a night time launch of Apollo 17 on 7th December 1972 the night sky turned an extraordinary blue I know of no other artist who has tried to capture the drama of a space launch let alone one who has succeeded It will I think emerge as a key work of its times Five Bar is exactly the sort of painting a public art gallery should be acquiring It will capture the attention and interest of a wide public It needs to be seen in a public space It will have a growing historical significance And it is a major work of art by a dedicated mature artist who is

    of Salisbury Library Galleries Wiltshire County Council 2008 Fiesta is a large enveloping work that draws you into a sea of colour The palette of colour is intense and personal floating and gestural It is predominantly red and pink with yellow orange marked with green and blue The whiteness and texture of the paper support the colour and enhance its luminous quality and atmospheric liveliness Although the work is abstract it undoubtedly is based on reality and events It has a structure that is fluid yet clearly defined across the whole field of the work The Water paint as the curator describes the medium is free yet controlled allowing the pigment to congeal and create special effects There is a sense of music and excitement echoing with the works of Kandinsky painted in response to music They have a contemplative quality and speak to the realm of the emotions and have been described as a joy to see Fiesta is one of the key works currently on show in the Otherworlds exhibition being held in the Main Gallery Salisbury Library Galleries Market Place Salisbury A family learning day held on the 23rd February provided an opportunity to explore the works

    exploring in her more recent work It is not the first time that her usual arrangements of squares and rectangles laid in horizontal and vertical arrangements have been broken by dynamic angles but here combined with the overlapping of these squares and their almost circular arrangement across the canvas she plays with our perception of space and depth Webb s abstract geometric and flat forms situate her within a tradition of modernist painters including Malevich Kandinsky Mondrian and Sonia and Robert Delaunay Colour has always been central to her practice and is sought in the landscapes that surround her at home in Suffolk and during her travels abroad Many of Mary Webb s works are ambiguously titled with the names of the places that inspired them my concern is with colour and the spatial sensations and emotions it can evoke frequently linked to the memory of place San Filippo IV version 2 is derived from time spent in a village of that name in Tuscany Italy The nearby Baptistery of San Giovanni in Florence is a favourite of Webb s On the outer walls she describes a stunningly simple geometric design using green and white local marble She talked of
