George Shaw unveils the culmination of his two-year studio residency at the National Gallery

About

Our current Associate Artist, George Shaw, has been busy creating new work in response to the collection since autumn 2014.

A former Turner Prize-nominee, Shaw is renowned for his highly detailed approach and suburban subject matter, and for his idiosyncratic medium – Humbrol enamel paint, typically used to colour model trains and aeroplanes.

Alluding to the theme of woodland in the collection, ‘My Back to Nature’ resonates with Shaw’s own experience of walking in the forest near his home town as a teenager, with the feeling that "something out of the ordinary could happen at any time there, away from the supervision of adults".
