An exhibition of work by Martin Swan
The Clayden Gallery, Quay Arts, Sea St. Newport
Sat 21st Aug - Sat 4th Sept
The exhibition will be in three sections.
Historical. This will comprise work from the early days, drawings, sketches, paintings – showing how I learned the craft and developed a style.
Recent familiar. Some familiar Swan pieces - landscapes, seascapes, some abstracts, and possibly a few portraits of my hospital colleagues, showing how the craft learnt was put to work.
Recent unfamiliar. What the Swan on the River likes to do when he’s not doing the other stuff – trying new craft processes and producing less familiar looking work. For instance, coating a surface with safflower oil, painting into that with a trowel or brush, and letting the oil disperse the paint.
