Figurative Scottish artist, Patsy McArthur is exhibiting her latest collection of work with us, Turner Barnes Gallery throughout the month of January and early February 2020 at our Shenfield gallery.
Patsy explores the grace and power of movement through her naturalistic drawings and painting and is inspired by the notion of escapism and the action of movement by both humans and animals. Her collection that will be exhibiting with Turner Barnes Gallery in January consists of charcoal drawn horses which displays this powerful visual of being free by jumping, flying and falling. Furthermore, the monochrome style of the pieces is influenced by the timeless feel of the black and white effect, eliminating any distraction from the piece, such as the seduction of colour.
In a recent interview with us, Patsy states how the influence of escapism is “combined with the rigorous training in life drawing that we had at Scottish art schools meant that I had the observational drawing skills to really develop my work in realism and I have made realist figurative work ever since and continue to push my draftsmanship as far as I can.” – Patsy McArthur.
Patsy is a Brighton based artist and is represented by many UK and international galleries who have all in turn exhibited her work worldwide. Patsy has been previously listed in the top 20 Scottish artists and has many collectors from across the world, most notably, the Quatari Royal family.
