An artwork entitled 'Self Portrait' by Trinity Laban composition student Talia Morey has been selected from hundreds of others for the Royal Society of British Painters' A-level exhibition at the Mall Galleries.
Talia, who also plays the piano and cello, is in her first year of a BMus, studying composition with Errollyn Wallen. She took up painting two years ago for her Art A-Level and paints mostly self-portraits, using oils on paper. This is the second year in a row her work has been selected by the Society.
"It was great to be selected for the exhibition again, especially as the standard of all the work was so high. My painting has also been chosen to be shown in the Oxford Street John Lewis from 26 March- 29 April, which is very exciting.
"My art is taking a back seat right now because I'm focussing more on my music, but the skills involved are not dissimilar to that of composing, as, in each case, I'm trying to realise something that I have envisioned, whether it be using paint to express it, or notation."
The exhibition is open until this week at the Mall Galleries, London SW1Y 5BD
