the fletcher gate fine art gallery welcomes
Dear Gallery Client
We are delighted to introduce the incredibly talented artist Sarah Watson.
Sarah explores the beauty and dynamism of the natural landscape using oilsticks (pure oil pigment and wax for easy transport) which she translates into descriptive but uniquely expressive marks. Much of her work leans towards abstraction but the form is still held. Her work is strictly carried out en plein air, where her emotional response to her setting is clearly described. Any further oil painting in her studio will always be translated directly from these original works.
Sarah's works are now on show to view.
We look forward to seeing you in the gallery.

'top cottages' and 'urban landscape' by the ever-popular
david j porter
Looking closely at David's work, you will notice how each painting has its own individual character.
The bright blocks of colour are enlivened by a system of over-painting that gives each form a compelling tonal intensity creating a landscape which shifts constantly in and out of focus.
To achieve the perfect balance, mid-way through creating each piece David turns the painting upside down and if it doesn't work the opposite way round it is discarded.
David has shown in solo and group exhibitions in numerous galleries also achieving recognition as a Laings Regional Finalist and Royal Academy Summer Exhibition Finalist. His work can be seen in private collections throughout the United Kingdom, Europe and Australia.
Now on show to view, these two delightful works join a body of work acquired in June of this year.
We look forward to seeing you in the gallery
George and Claire
