We love our new painting, which has been placed in the patio area of the Black Boy.We thank Glain Roberts for her work. Her Story is below.

Fel plentyn, darllenodd fy nain sawl stori i mi wrth eistedd ar ei glin, ac mae hyn wedi cael effaith tuag at fy ngwaith i hyd heddiw. Rhan amlaf, mae hanes neu naratif tu ôl i’r gwaith rwyf yn ei gynhyrchu; nid ydyw hyn yn amlwg i’r gynulleidfa bob tro.

Rwyf yn teimlo’n gryfach wrth beintio nag wrth droi at gyfryngau eraill, ond tydw’i byth yn ofn arbrofi. Mae gennai berthynas corfforol gyda’r gwaith rwyf yn ei gynhyrchu am fy mod yn hoff iawn o beintio ar raddfa mawr. Fel arfer mae’r gwaith yn fwy na fi. Dwi’n teimlo bod mwy o lê i arbrofi pan mae’r cynfas yn fwy ac mai’n fwy o her i mi.

Mae’r gwaith yr wyf yn ei gynhyrchu yn unigryw am fy mod yn hoff o fod yn ddychmygus. Rwyf yn delio gyda pynciau reit drwm ac sensitif, am fy mod yn teimlo bod rhaid gwthio’r ffiniau yn y byd celf er mwyn cael neges ar draws.

Mae llun y Black Boy wedi bod yn sialens hollol newydd i mi oherwydd rwyf wedi gwthiad y ffiniau. Dewisiais y Black Boy oherwydd roeddwn yn ymwybodol o pa mor boblogaidd oedd y dafarn, ac hefyd rwyf yn hoff iawn o awyrgylch y lle. Roeddwn yn cael fy hudo i fewn gan lliwiau ac hanes y dafarn.

Mae’r llun yma yn wahanol i bopeth arall yr wyf wedi ei greu, felly mae lle arbennig iawn yn fy nghalon iddo.




As a child, I remember being sat on my grandmother’s lap as she read fairytales to me. I believe that this has impacted my artwork. Most of the time, there is a story or narrative behind the work that I produce; this isn’t always recognisable to the audience always.

I feel stronger when I paint, although I am happy to experiment and play around with other materials. I have a physical relationship with my paintings as they are usually large scale, they are usually bigger than me. I feel there is more space to experiment on the canvas, and it’s also a challenge to me.

The work that I produce is unique in the sense that I like to be imaginative and that I deal with subjects that are a bit heavy/sensitive and difficult to absorb. I feel the need to do this as a young artist to push boundaries and also to get a message across.

The Black Boy painting has been one of the most challenging piece I’ve done to date. It was a completely different and new experience for me to paint a space, as I usually paint figures and faces. I knew that I wanted to paint the Black Boy as it’s such a well known, popular place. The atmosphere of the pub, the colours and its history attracted me.

This painting is very different to my other works, therefore this painting has a very special place in my heart.

Dyma hanes hi.
