Martyn Brewster in conversation with Professor Simon Olding
Friday 29 September 6.30pm
Tickets: £10 or £25 with dinner to follow.
Martyn Brewster, painter of vigorous lyrical abstract landscapes and sensitive pen and ink drawings, talks about his life and work with Professor Simon Olding. A fascinating discussion of abstraction in landscape art, exploring how Martyn Brewster uses colour and tone as emotional vehicles, including his recent emphasis on more neutral colours, and the energetic, evocative, creative process of making his art. Professor Simon Olding is the author of two books about Martyn’s work as well as numerous other insightful books, papers and articles about artists and makers. He comes fresh from co-curating ‘Things of Beauty Growing’: British Studio Pottery at Yale Centre for British Art in USA. Artist and art historian share with us a conversation between longtime friends and colleagues, whose knowledge and understanding of each others’ ideas has been built up over many years of discussion and collaboration and will now be opened out to questions and input from the audience.
The talk will be followed by an informal delicious dinner served by Sladers Yard’s award-winning Licensed Café.
