Elephant and Castle by Brian Bartlett
Brian said ‘My work is influenced by my love of painting. In particular Post War British and American Abstraction. I start a piece of work by applying paint at random. Initially the painting itself dictates its own direction, until form evolves and a painting is ‘born’. Quite often, this might be of an image remembered, it might be a landscape, an interior or a still-life. As I paint, I try to reduce and simplify the image to capture and convey the mood or atmosphere it created.’ The vigorous compositions of colour and light that result from this approach, create a very real sense of space.
Brian’s paintings can be seen as celebrations of colour which are both decorative and sensual. Colours glow and sing with a vibrancy and sensuality that become expressions of the joy of life.
