Past Imperfect. One of the UK’s most acclaimed portrait painters, goes deep into the events of his extraordinary life with this new collection of paintings. Confined to home during lockdown he dug out an old family photo album and found himself transported into the past, it inspired a surge of creativity.
As we step into Autumn, we are delighted to present this new group exhibition that celebrates the diverse qualities of Britain’s changing seasons.
We have a selection of works by some gallery favourites – Annie Ovenden, Haydn Cottam and Mark Godwin as well as introducing some wonderful new artists – Susie Fasht, Julian Vilarrubi and Nick Bodemeade.
Rachel Deacon returns to the Catto Gallery for her fourth exhibition, painting her strong and beguiling women. In composition, they echo back to the classical masters but there’s also a narrative focus to her scenes with a hint of intrigue and conspiracy in those female gatherings.
Helen Sinclair pounds the beaches of south Wales looking for debris, driftwood and other found objects to turn into her beautiful and moving works of art. As befits someone so rooted in the natural world, Helen’s primary subject is the human figure. It’s a testament to her skill and control that she can conjure such profound emotion from just a few elegant lines.
