A FATHER and daughter have a new exhibition on display at the Royston & District Museum.
Falcon Green and Anstey Garrick Green's works are contrasting, but at the same time complement each other.
Anstey, who for the past three years has been museum assistant, gained a degree in contemporary art at Nottingham Trent University.
She describes her work as "hands on".
Anstey creates multi-coloured and shapely constructions and collages using a variety of materials.
The results are often map-like with a sense of order emerging from great complexity.
Falcon's work is evocative of the landscapes he has observed. They are stylised paintings in acrylic using hard-edged techniques and large areas of colour and tone to suggest a setting.
Occasionally there is some details which, he says, makes the picture "jump into life".
His landscapes include scenes from the western Highlands of Scotland to the rolling county of North Herts, the South Downs and the Yorkshire Dales.
Both Falcon and Anstey exhibited together at The Place in Letchworth last year.
- The exhibition will run to Saturday, October 20.
- The museum is open Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday from 10am to 4.45pm and on Sunday and bank holidays from 2pm to 4.45pm.
