Clifton Powell (The Jamaica School of Art) - Art Exhibition - Lansdown Gallery GL5 1BB
Clifton Powell is a west country artist who will be exhibiting his paintings drawings and prints from 6th - 12th September 2012. The Exhibition will show a diverse collection of figurative, landscape, still life and political compositions. His unique style is remarkable for its dynamic use of colour and skilled draughtmanship. Clifton Powell describes himself as a realist painter and while many of the pieces are sharply focussed and almost photographic, others explore a more impressionistic use of colour and mood. He chooses subjects that allow him to investigate his ethnic roots in Africa and The West Indies. Many of these paintings have a timeless quality, close to traditional portraiture, a quality also apparent in his studies of the English countryside and still life pieces. Other paintings address contemporary issues with the energy and directness of reportage.
