Artist Roo Abrook is running an exhibition of portraits at Hounds Barbers on Highland Road in Southsea, launching on Saturday 18th November.
The exhibition will showcase collages on canvas, a collection of children’s portraits on antique and vintage found objects, and a limited-edition print run of Little Girl Dreams (the ballerina on the wall opposite Tea Tray in Osborne Road).
Roo is known for her collages, drawings, paintings, illustrations, and prints. She uses aged papers, books, musical score sheets, leather book binders, and old interesting objects such as Victorian lace fans and ribbons as foundations for her works.
Roo’s artworks incorporate original photography and drawings, and she’s produced visuals for record releases, gallery shows, and original commissions for well-known musician’s homes.
The exhibition launches on Saturday 18th November, with a free event running from 6:00pm to 8:00pm.
