A BEWDLEY artist has set up an exhibition of her work at St George’s Hall.

Karen Parody, who specialises in textiles and surface design, will have her pieces displayed in the community hub’s cafe until Monday, September 8.

The artist, who is regularly commissioned to produce work for architects and interior designers, creates abstract surfaces through a variety of mixed media using materials such as canvas, wood, resin, acrylics, silk and plastics.

She said: “It is really nice to have my art on display in the town where I live and I hope members of the public will appreciate it.

“My inspiration originates from sources such as architecture, satellite imagery, order and chaos and abstract images found in nature and captured through photography.

“I am interested in a variety of qualities involved in the creation and destruction of surfaces – regularity and irregularity, distortions of depth and surface through the use of transparency and translucency and the relationship between minimal form and complex surface texture.

“My work focuses on colour and texture and enhancing the interior of a space.”

The exhibition at St George’s Hall’s cafe is free to attend.

Mrs Parody, who previously lived and worked in Dubai, also has a studio in Bewdley Museum where members of the public can meet her and discuss the techniques used to create the art.
