Stephen Palmer 'In the Field'

21 November - 5 December 2015

In November, we held our first solo exhibition with Stephen Palmer, which explored his experiences of working in and from the landscape.

 

In the forty paintings on display, Palmer's strong relationship with the rural landscapes of both England and France was clear. His distinctive and increasingly loose paintings are the product of concentrated studies and time spent drawing in the fields. Palmer paints in broad, flat brushstrokes to describe the planes of his environment, combining this with the description of finer details to create a layering in his painting. His great understanding of colour lifts the works from simple representations to the truly enchanting.
