Graham Brock

Keels and Wheels

30 July – 11 August

Atmospheric sunlit scenes of Europe and the Caribbean from a contemporary English colourist. Greetings cards, demonstration and artistic enthusiasm available.

Graham has been exhibiting at the Oxmarket for over twenty years bringing new paintings and ideas each season.

He usually chooses a new venue and motif for a new exhibition as well as a few favourite subjects and local scenes he is well known for. As a professional commercial artist his work has to be diverse from figurative and precise to looser landscapes and even carving and sculpture, but he prefers to return to his favourite subjects and techniques of the French impressionists he practised during his time in his Normandy studio near the Seine.

This year’s major journey was to Martinique and other Caribbean islands following in the footsteps of Gaugin’s first journey to the colonies. He took a relatively unknown friend with him, but what images would we have had if he had taken Van Gogh or other artists with him. Graham had to go to find out and has his ideas and answers but all you have to do is visit the Oxmarket and share yours.
