This week at Sevenoaks Art Shop we have dedicated 2 windows to show the latest work of local artist Graeme Lothian. Graeme is a contemporary war artist, but when he is not in war zones he enjoys getting out and painting local country scenes. We have a variety of work featuring recognisable scenes of Sevenoaks and of the surrounding area for sale, along with some behind the scenes photographs of Graeme at work, as well as some of his military memorabilia on show.
Featuring in the window this week is Sam Toft, whose prints feature her characters, Mr. Mustard, his dear lady wife Violet with an eccentric host of pets, friends and sheep. Working in Pastel, pencil and unusual mixed media techniques, she creates an idiosyncratic world that evokes trips to the seaside in nostalgic colours and inimitabe style. She has exhibited work at numerous solo shows in London and across the UK. We are exhibiting a number of limited edition signed prints in the upstairs gallery, alongside smaller prints and greetings cards in our shop.
Sevenoaks Art Shop are pleased to announce that we are currently displaying work for sale by Fletcher Sibthorpe. Born in Hertfordshire, Sibthorpe has had a successful career as a painter since training at Kingston University, gaining awards and commissions, exhibiting frequently in London and Japan.
Predominantly known for his dance paintings, Studio Print Editions have worked closely with Sibthorpe to produce high quality editioned prints of his ongoing personal series of works titled ‘Quiet Space’. Sibthorpe explains that the works “ represents for me, captured moments of human introspection and frailty, instants which exist and are gone.”
Sibthorpe displays a passion for the atmospheric and has developed a voice that combines a contemporary composition with classical references and themes.
Printed on 300gsm Somerset Satin cotton rag and embellished with leaf, we have framed these works in-house, using Art Glass throughout to minimise UV damage and reduce glare. These are exceptional artworks to own.
