Working with oil paints and inspired by the beautiful surroundings in South East Kent, contemporary landscape artist Anthony Giles captures the atmosphere, light and colour of his local area. Starting work ‘en plein air’ the pieces are finished in his studio in Margate. Take this opportunity to see new works made especially for this exhibition at Lombard Street Gallery.
‘As a landscape artist I regularly limit my view to select a much smaller slice of the scene that is visible to me. Gradually reducing portions of a larger subject through a limited focus gives an entirely different viewpoint that leads me towards abstracting a slice of that same view. My brush and palette knife strokes become multi-functional, assigning colour, texture and movement, as well as describing subject and form. As these brushstrokes become increasingly vigorous and confident, greater attention is brought to the painting surface, recognisable forms begin to dissolve and abstraction is introduced.’
