Will Calver is a painter based in Kent and Cornwall. In his paintings he combines the techniques of classical figuration with a freer hand. The paintings are made from life in an alla prima mode, working from direct observation and drawings. Working from life entails spending time with the subject to discover its unique presence. In his most recent paintings, Calver chooses objects around his home, turning the everyday into calm icons of domesticity.
“Painting becomes meditative; slowing down our fast paced world. Through mindful observation, the everyday is seen in a new light.”
