Will Calver - Summer Collection

This summer we present rising painter Will Calver’s latest collection of still-life works. Will graduated with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art from Falmouth University in 2019, and now paints full time at his studio, which is set among fruit trees and farmland in rural Kent. Here, he is able witness the slow turning of the seasons, which helps to create a sense of naturalism in his brilliantly subtle, beautiful works. Will paints from direct observation, examining interactions between light, shape and colour, and expressing the intimacy and quietude that develop during time spent in the presence of his subjects. Classical figuration, spacious compositions and an extraordinary skill for interpreting tone and form give his paintings of quince, lemons, peaches, pebbles, bottles and ceramic objects a beauty and power rarely seen in the contemporary art today.

Works will be published on the website on the 28th of July 2021 at 15:00 GMT
