A landscape oil painting - when done well- has the power to transport its viewer. George Rowlett in his exhibition ‘In the Midst of it’ at Abbey Walk Gallery is such an artist.

Born in Scotland in 1941, George attend Grimsby School of Art and then both Camberwell and the Royal Academy Schools.  He was taught by Frank Auerbach and Euan Uglow.  

When George paints he is seldom deterred by weather: he sets out most days on an ancient bicycle, laden with wood panels and 12 1/2 litres of paint - just white and the three primary colours.

He responds to the place and the conditions as they evolve around him, and describes his paintings as ‘Layers of experience’, some concious others accidental.  George says he finds ‘The fall of light from the sky is just one of the most glorious things. A daily gift.’

'In the Midst of It' can be viewed at Abbey Walk Gallery until 2 August.  For all Art lovers and painters alike a not to be missed exhibition.  The general consensus - Stunning…..
