London based Stephen Read will be exhibiting his dramatic coastal paintings in the Granary Art Gallery for a selling exhibition throughout October.
Often including figures within his paintings, Stephen creates both the sense of both playfulness and anonymity within dramatic and powerful surroundings, by using washes of oil paint on board. By aiming to connect his work to processes of film making and photography, Stephen cuts and pastes figures and objects from holiday snaps, film and TV to create his unique compositions.
Stephen has studied and exhibited widely throughout the UK and USA. After finishing his education he spent a year in Provincetown, Massachusetts on a fellowship at an artists and writers colony and this is where he began developing his figurative studies.
Stephen Read runs throughout October in the Granary Art Gallery.
