Opening 11 May until 20 October 2024, The Pallant House Gallery will hold the first major exhibition to explore British still life.

The Shape of Things questions the idea that still life is a lesser genre, showing how important it is to artists and society. Featuring a ‘Who’s Who’ of Modern and Contemporary British artists, the exhibition digs into still life’s rich symbolism and how it’s pushed boundaries and new ideas.

The exhibition will shift from 17th-century ‘vanitas’ paintings to post-impressionism to abstraction and from pop to conceptual art.

On display will be a selection of works by modern and contemporary artists in Britain, including William Scott.

“This is a hardground etching with aquatint I made in 2022 of an old Greek doorway in Athens ....a fairly ubiquitous sight. I recently printed an edition of five on the inside of old Greek medical textbook covers I found whilst clearing out an old house in Lesvos.

I printed this edition especially for Anita Rogers Gallery coincide with my exhibition, “Transitions” , which opened recently and will run until the end of May.

Old paper often has a softness and tone which is inimitable and is a pleasure to draw on or to print etchings on. Each one is therefore different and I felt the oldness of the paper married well with the subject...both being over 100 years old!”

“Drawing inspiration from luminaries such as Degas, Turner, and Rauschenberg, he seamlessly blends age-old mastery with a contemporary aesthetic, breathing new life into the timeless art of figurative painting.

For .watson, light is more than just a physical phenomenon—it is a conduit for emotion and meaning. Whether illuminating the intimate confines of an interior space or bathing the expansive outdoors in a golden glow, light plays a central role in shaping the mood and atmosphere of his compositions. His meticulous attention to detail, coupled with a keen understanding of form and shadow, creates a sense of depth and dimensionality that is truly mesmerizing.”

Throughout Watson’s 35-year career, he has consistently searched, experimented, and found new ways to refresh the existing forms and infuse them with the vigor of the ever-changing modern world.  His work combines age-old mastery with an abstract aesthetic.

Today we are sharing more images from our exhibition from this time last year - Jack Martin Rogers’ solo exhibition “Peregrination: From Past to Present” ran March through late April 2023.

Peregrination took viewers on a journey through the artist’s lifetime and his travels through Britain, Turkey, Italy, and the Greek islands. Through paintings, sketches, and watercolor studies spanning over forty years, the exhibition offered insight into the mind of a painter, musician, and philosopher.

Figurative art may seem an outdated form to pursue in our times, a form already perfected long ago. There are a few contemporary artists, however, who practice this at the caliber of the Renaissance masters in terms of drawing, composition, and technique but who are also firmly grounded in a modern approach.

British artist Tomas Watson (b. 1971) is one of these. Throughout his 35-year career, he has consistently searched, experimented, and found new ways to refresh the existing forms and infuse them with the vigor of the ever-changing modern world.  His work combines age-old mastery with an abstract aesthetic.

Watson, a figurative artist not restricted by realism, studied at the Slade School of Art in London and won the BP Portrait Award in 1998.  He has lived and worked in Greece for most of his career.  When asked why, Watson answers, “The Greek light.”

04/16/2024

“This was the first painting I made after my girls were born. The idea of doing an archetypal ‘Greek’ painting had been brewing for months and as soon as I found some time I got straight down to it. Wanting it to be as simple and effective as possible, I flattened all colour to the same saturation...almost like a screenprint. In real life, you hardly ever see pure saturated colour, especially in the sun because it is reflects back and forth and changes intensity in different places. So I wanted to see how real I could make this unreal way of painting.

When composing a painting like this , I look for the shadows, because that is where the drawing is. The shadows almost entirely describe the form and the direction of the light (if observed accurately) and so are a necessary part of a structured drawing.

I chose to paint these blue chairs because they are a ubiquitous feature (or were) of the Greek Islands and say a lot in a subtle way about the Greek experience : sitting at a taverna, waiting for the ferry, drinking a coffee, mid day siesta...the fact that you need two chairs to get comfortable...your right foot nearly always rests on the rungs of the second chair!

The palette is as limited as I could keep it and everything has been simplified down as much as I could without losing the sense of vague chaos in an outside corner of a taverna at lunch time.”

Repost from : “ I think the most important piece of advice is to just be true to yourself and don’t quit.

It’s also very important to find people who believe in you and support you on your path.

In those times when you’re faced with financial adversity, rejections, and personal life struggles, having people who lift you up creatively is so important.

It takes extreme dedication and persistence, any way you slice it. But when you have to balance financial woes, a day job, or other life events, it can be hard to store the energy and make time to create.

This means telling the people who love you and want to spend time with you that you need a little more studio time, or staying up late when everyone else goes to bed (or getting up early if you’re one of those morning people).

I do believe there are times when we all “starve” for our art, with our art, and without our art... so try not to view the path of an artist as a straight line with a beginning, middle, and end—it’s full of twists, turns, starts, stops and unexpected whirlwinds.”
