You are warmly invited to join us in the gallery to celebrate the opening of the exhibition and to meet Debbie George on Saturday 1st April from 10am to 5pm.

Debbie will also be signing copies of her new book, 'Thirty Years of Painting' which will be available to purchase on the day.

Debbie George's work is a celebration of her passion for flowers and the objects with which she surrounds herself - from ceramics to fruits, feathers and stones. Landscape is an important influence that underlies her paintings, whether they are of particular places or still-life compositions.

Frequently Debbie George assembles flowers or objects within the foreground of a painting and sets them against a far landscape, so that you sense a domestic space opening out into nature: both spaces are revealed with surprising clarity and with a perspective that is uniquely the artist's own. The carefully selected objects - some found or given, others acquired especially for painting - are equally carefully positioned, to the extent that the space between them, or emptiness around them, is highly resonant.

Working with the ancient medium of gesso, with which she primes her panels, Debbie George builds up layer upon layer of paint, creating a wonderful luminosity and depth that she reveals by scratching into and through the layers: an inscribing that she also uses to emphasise form. By doing so she expresses subtle tonal and sculptural qualities.
