Darren Stevenson Solo Exhibition

About

Friday 24th November - December 2017

The Fletcher Gate Gallery will be welcoming the internationally acclaimed coastal scene artist Darren Stevenson for a solo exhibition from 24th November. 

Born in Nottingham, England in 1966, Darren Stevenson's moody, enigmatic coastal scenes are instantly recognizable.

Working in oils, Darren builds upon a traditional process and theme. He blends this approach with modern techniques, abstract in style and by using ‘rabbit skin’ glue he primes the canvas giving it textures and layers. Once dry he uses layers of oil to get the desired effect and sandpaper where necessary to create further texture and depth.

Painting 'en plein air', Darren travels up and down the English coast and France searching for the perfect spot to paint. He paints what he sees, does not use digital aids and sometimes sits out for hours come wind, rain or shine to get the perfect scene.

Reminiscent of the beautiful coastal scenes of the romantic period, Darren's new collection is now on show to view in the gallery.
