Orange, Red and Blue Series is an art exhibition in The South Gate Gallery.
Featuring established artist Chris Pitman
Chris is perhaps best known for his realist maritime oil paintings, predominantly reflecting the estuary town of Teignmouth in Devon where he grew up in the 1950’s and ’60’s. His work has been hung, and indeed sold, at the prestigious Royal Society of Marine Artists open exhibition at the Mall Galleries in London.
After being accepted as an Academician with the South West Academy of Fine and Applied Arts (SWAc), Chris took a fresh view of his earlier veristic works. Deconstructing and reconstructing his original artwork, he intensified and expanded the essence of the same scene onto canvas in Abstract form.
His following ‘ORB’ series, whilst straying into Industrial Brutalism was an attempt to simplify further, whilst still presenting a challenge to the senses of the viewer.
Find us at 64 South Street in Exeter EX1 1EE, Close to the Cathedral.
Open Evening is Friday 6th October 6.30 – 8.30pm, and finishes on 14th November.
