Picture of the Month

January 2022
by Andrew Field

Intertwined carvings in blue
Secrets of Basildon
53 x 72cm

Andrew's works are always very striking. I love the way he combines and reorganises the details of carvings from local historic buildings. This particular painting is like a precariously balanced structured which defies gravity but invites us in closer to see what is going on.  

His work is incredibly detailed and extremely skilful, and I am full of admiration for his work.
