Colin Orchard - Selected New Work 2018
20th October to 3rd November 2018

 

Colin Orchard - Selected New Work 2018 Typically an oil on board artist who crops his paintings into strong compositions once they are finished, this collection showcases Colin's recent involvement with canvas, which requires him to define his compositions at the start of each work. Developments in his use of tone and colour may also have been affected by two recent cataract operations. This exhibition returns to the artist's favourite subjects of Venice, Suffolk and Cornwall, and people in gallery spaces.

'I have often stated that the publication "Paintings in Progress" by the late Bernard Dunstan inspired me to become a full-time painter.

Most importantly, I adopted his method of preparing and making panels, which I still occasionally use. I was never conscious or concerned about composition, as I would select the area I considered to be the painting and then crop - always to a square format.

Without any given reason I recently decided to paint on stretched canvases, all square format, ranging from 30cm - 86cm. This completely new direction at first presented an interesting challenge as I no longer had the option to crop.

Perhaps another factor regarding my recent work is a slight change in my use of tone, colour and scale. This is due to cataract operations this year to both eyes - possibly with quite interesting results.

For this exhibition I have returned to my favourite subjects of Venice, Cornwall, Suffolk and people. The work on show is equally divided between panels and canvases.'
