Jenna Burlingham Fine Art is holding a major solo exhibition of landscape artist Peter Joyce's work, Peter's first London exhibition for four years. The exhibition will be held at Gallery 8, 8 Duke Street, St James's, London from 5 to 10 May.
Peter Joyce is an important and well-known international , contemporary artist, working in a Modern British style encompassing the landscape tradition of the post War British art movement, such a Peter Lanyon, Keith Vaughan and Alan Reynolds. He is extremely well-respected by galleries, museums, designers and Modern British collectors and this is his biggest show for 4 years. Prices range from £1,500 to £18,000.
Having moved from coastal Dorset, he now lives and works in the marshlands of Western France and this landscape shapes his paintings. He has a very distinctive approach, his paintings are created layer by layer. The painting surface is worked and re-worked: drawing, painting and compositional changes are endlessly made creating complicated and yet enchanting surfaces. The process continues until the painting reminds him of the place and the place reminds him of the painting.
