Award-winning mixed media artist Agnes McLaughlin has revealed her latest exhibition, which will take place in the picturesque village of Cabris in the South of France.
A self-taught artist, Agnes is known for her unique artistic style, using mixed media techniques to create spontaneous artworks. Some of her inspirations include artists such as Moira Huntly, Cathy Johnson, Fiona French and Ian Fennelly. She has also participated in several workshops with the likes of Mike Bernard and Laura Rosana, where she practiced for several years a range of art styles from collages to sketching.
Agnes’ latest exhibition is set to reveal a series of new artworks that have been created digitally. Each artwork was inspired by real life events, showcasing architectural themes as well as nature, such as animal characters. Blending a range of sketching effects and artistic brushes through new digital apps, Agnes will display her latest artworks this July at the Office du Tourisme in Cabris.
Speaking with Métro Liberté, Agnes said, “My latest exhibition will show some of my most recent inspirations. I had a lot of fun in creating these animal portraits. I’ve also sketched some of the wonderful provencal views that I’ve come across in my recent travels. These include drawings of historic architecture that shows the region’s true beauty and rich history.”
Having previously exhibited in a variety of galleries and events across the Cote d’Azur from Cannes to Monaco, Agnes’ latest exhibition brings her artwork to the scenic mountains of the Alpes-Maritimes in the small village of Cabris, with spectacular views over the French Riviera.
Just a few kilometres away from Grasse, the perfume capital of the world, Cabris over the years has welcomed a number of well known artists, writers and thinkers, dating back to the 1950s. Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, a WWII pilot-navigator, author, illustrator, and national hero of France wrote the world renowned Le Petit Prince, considered a literary masterwork, and among the best-selling books of all time. Other famous residents include the likes of Simone de Beauvoir, Marcel Pagnol, Jean Marais, Roger Martin du Gard, French novelist Jean-Paul Sartre, and many others.
Agnes’ latest exhibition will take place from July 23rd – August 7th at the Office du tourisme in Cabris. A number of artworks and collectible items will also be available for sale.
