Charles Kitchen - Into the Light

13th July – 29th September 2019

Stacks Image 21510

Light effects from both coastal and inland scenes inspired the works in this exhibition. By working to translate nature’s colours and weather effects onto a two dimensional surface the artist is able to evoke the atmosphere of each scene rather than produce a copied representation of it.

Gathered here are paintings from a career spanning thirty-five years.

All the works in the exhibition were executed in oils and produced in the artist’s studio or ‘en plein air’. The artist is a strong believer in the need to avoid developing a personal ‘style’. Rather he believes in individual interactIon with each scene to create a true feeling for the location.

Works in the exhibition are for sale.
