Alison D’Oyley is ‘Drawn by Nature’

Member Alison D’Oyley has a forthcoming exhibition ‘Drawn by Nature’ to include drawings, watercolours and original limited edition silkscreen and linocut prints. Alison’s work is inspired by nature’s networks and grids, for example insect wings or winter trees, and also reflections and shadows – beautiful but ephemeral.

The Hague, Piet Mondrian and the Mauritshuis

Piet Mondrian
Composition with red, black, yellow, blue and grey. 1921

The Hague:
• Home of King Willem Alexander and Queen Maxima.
• Residence Huis ten Bosch.
• Seat of the Cabinet of the Netherlands. (tweedekamer)
• International Court of Justice.

In mid-September I visited The Hague; the purpose of my visit “Discovering Mondrian” an exhibition at the Gemeentmuseum in the city. The Gemeentemuseum houses and owns the largest and best collection of Mondrian’s’ in the world.

As a devotee of Mondrian’s oeuvre and a fascination in his unique journey from being a very competent landscape painter to the very modern abstract art for which he is better known today.


Greyfriars Art Space first began in February 2008, when Jill North, with a group of B.A. Fine Art students, based at the College of West Anglia, decided that there was no affordable space in Kings Lynn for emerging young artists to show their work. Jill was able to purchase the property at 43 St James Street, and together with friends transformed it into the attractive small gallery we know today.
