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

The threads that tie the different works together in Tanya’ s ‘GREEN BEACH’ capture the ‘human experience’ in a poetic distancing of the artist and her subject.
Each painting in this unique body of original works, walks the tightrope between abstraction and figuration. The pinks, whites and flesh tones of the figures resonate against the backdrop of green and violet shadows, as human form becomes one with abstraction.
Tanya’s narrative of the populated beach as a celebration of life with its llight, complex language of form, colour and movement is a reoccurring theme in Tanya’s work.
WE HOPE YOU CAN JOIN US!
