New Art Exhibition Launch: “Soul Scapes Paintings” by Paul Watson

Opening 10 October ‘Soul Scapes’

Malthouse Paul Watson 2

Paintings on canvas by Paul Watson

“My work tries to capture the emotional connection between us and the natural world.

 Abstraction negates the limitations of the figurative and thus the techniques I employ are both honest and intuitive means of expression.

I believe abstraction aids the images to resonate with people from all cultures and ethnic groups.

Music is my invisible brush -all my work is executed to a soundtrack, from Mid Century jazz to world music and the classic composers. The polyglot of cultural  rhythms finds expression in each mark and stroke and combine to give form to the whole.

Distilling the world with this overall intent, I seek a universal language. The minimalism and monochromatic palette are deliberate- employed to aid the paintings capture the essential.

My process is a premeditated absorption, followed by a visceral mind to hand process and if the final result does not stand up to my intention then it is discarded. This is how I have always worked and was a discipline that I adhered to from my earliest years as watercolour painter, inspired by the disciplines of that primary mark and first stroke, so admired in classic Chinese and Japanese art and that intuitive capturing of the elemental forces of nature found in the travelling sketchbooks of W M Turner.”

Enjoy these spectacular paintings at the Malthouse Bar & Kitchen between 9th August – 9th October


The idea for  this series of paintings by local artist Kerry Phippen, came from a simple wish to bring the outdoors inside, and an initial vision of how she would love to see images of live-sized animals leaping around the space. Her desire to capture the sense of the animal, their very nature and traits an of course, their beauty.
It is about being quiet and observant
“I am extremely lucky that I live in an area where I regularly see horses, deer, foxes, buzzards and other wild animals. They inspire me and I love to watch them, using drawing and photography in the early stages of ideas building. These have evolved into ink paintings on wonderful handmade Indian rag paper, combining my love for ink and fine papers and gorgeous wild creatures”

Thank you to Pegasus Art for their sponsorship of Indian papers and inks
