Stafford Gallery are privileged to present our fifth exhibition in association with Wimbledon Fine Art in Wimbledon Village by the highly regarded Scottish painter Jack Morrocco.

About

In both his traditional still life and landscape paintings Jack Morrocco

is drawn to the effects of light whether reflections on silver

and water or dappled light, ideas that interested him as a

student 45 years ago. Portraiture formed the basis of his early

work and John Singer Sargent was his major influence, Jack

was fascinated by Sargent’s technique of making a single

brushstroke accurately describe the subject; Vermeer, he

has long admired for the serenity and tranquillity imbued

into his paintings; Caravaggio for the dramatic use of light

and composition. Most people viewing Jack’s studio still

life paintings for the first time reference Picasso and indeed

Jack has always admired his work, the quantity, the scale,

his technical ability and the sheer genius of inventiveness,

Jack feels that Picasso was the greatest force in 20th Century

art, and an artist that he returns to for inspiration.

Jack is always in demand for solo exhibitions north and

south of the border and his paintings are collected worldwide.

This new exhibition includes the sparkling and hot

destinations of Barcelona, Valencia, Palma de Majorca, Lisbon, Cannes,

Rome, St Tropez and Paris. Works have been completed in the last year

and the exhibition covers all genres of his painting; landscape,

still life and studio still life. Please join us at the PV and

enjoy an exciting journey to many favourite destinations in

the company of the artist.
