Gallery 8 London (21 - 26 May 2018)
8 Duke Street, St James's SW1
The Alchemy of Paint brings together works by five British Artists: Tom Coates PPNEAC RP, Fred Cuming RA, Julie Jackson NEAC, Mary Jackson NEAC and Andrew Roberts, each of whom utilise paint as a means of offering new perspectives on the observed world. Based principally upon direct observation of nature, the works demonstrate the expressive possibilities of the medium through gesture, texture and colour. The artists have translated real-life experiences into painterly equivalents; elevating, romanticising, and deepening our appreciation of the surroundings which are so often overlooked.
