Marissa Weatherhead ‘A Table by the Sea’ | Spring Headline Exhibition

by The Biscuit Factory | NEWCASTLE UPON TYNE
Date of event: 02/02/24 - 17/03/24

Marissa Weatherhead paints colourful still life pieces with evident influences of Picasso and Matisse. An MA graduate from the Royal College of Art, Marissa has exhibited internationally and has a commissioned piece hanging in the Guildhall at London’s Barbican

 ‘A Table by the Sea’ is a collection of still life paintings; tablescapes which often are laden with seafood, fruit and foliage, making reference to pleasurable moments of indulgence and occasion.

“I have used the theme of ‘a table ‘ in my work as a recurring concept over the years and have been lucky enough to be selected for several ‘artist in residences’ with this as a central starting point for creating a body of works.

The table itself is rarely represented as a whole in my work but serves as the stage for a group of objects either separate or connected on which to perform.”
