Purbeck-based artist Brian Graham has enjoyed a lifelong fascination with places where evidence of our earliest human ancestors has been found. His recent paintings are concerned with mood and weather in these atmospheric landscapes which he explores in many layered textured paintings that hover in the fertile ground between abstract and figurative.

Brian Graham’s work has been enthusiastically embraced by archaeologists and art lovers alike. The Natural History Museum, London, possesses and has exhibited one of his portfolio works, The Book of Boxgrove. In January 2009 he shared a Nature Live Event there, entitled Boxgrove Art and Artefacts, with Professor Chris Stringer, Merit Researcher at the Natural History Museum and co-author with Professor Peter Andrews of another publication about Brian’s work, Starting From Scratch.

Brian Graham’s work is in several prestigious private collections and in many public collections including The National Museum of Wales, the art galleries of Dorchester, Southampton, Leicester, Huddersfield and York as well as the universities of Oxford, Cambridge, Southampton and London. In 2008, Brian Graham was awarded an Honorary Doctorate of Arts by Bournemouth University where for some years he has acted as visual arts consultant. Also that year, a richly illustrated hardback monograph, Brian Graham, Flint and Flame, written by critic and broadcaster Charlotte Mullins was published by Hart Gallery, who represented him in London between 1998 and 2012.  

Brian Graham’s most recent solo exhibition at Sladers Yard was The Great Heath in 2019, exploring the ancient landscape between Dorchester and Bournemouth which Thomas Hardy called Egdon Heath. This was his second solo show at Sladers Yard. The first, Palaeoscapes in 2014, featured paintings of the places where Palaeolithic human remains have been found in this country. In 2018 Brian Graham’s exhibition Towards Music, exploring the evolution of music and dance through specific pieces of music and their composers, showed at Salisbury Museum and then at Southampton University.

A lavishly illustrated full-colour 40 page A4 sized catalogue for Brian’s most recent exhibition, The Great Heath, is available from Sladers Yard at £10 plus £2 p&p within UK.

    I met Brian Graham some years ago when he was Art Director of a Bournemouth marketing company and have fond memories of a very nice man. We have four of his paintings which date back to the early 1990`s which my wife and I love. Please let us know if Brian is exhibiting at any time in our neck of the woods – we live in Monmouthshire – and please remember me to him.

    I’m trying to find a book called Flint and Flame published by Hart Galleries of Brian Graham’s work. Can’t find anything anywhere, his work is stunning. Your help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

      We stock Flint and Flame here and can send a copy on to you. Unfortunately I have just sold out. I will have more when Brian next comes over. Meanwhile if you would like to email me on with your phone number and address I will see whether I can get a copy sent to you direct and we can take payment over the phone. Delighted you like his work and many thanks for your interest. Best wishes, Anna Powell
