About

Space, Time and Place- New Paintings by Deborah Lanyon

The title of this exhibition - ‘Space Time and Place’ - reflects the key ingredients of Lanyon's work. The culinary term “Ingredient” reflects the sensory quality of the paintings.

‘Space” - the first ingredient - is the primary inspiration for the work. it offers compositional value and immediate engagement with the landscape.

“Time” determines how Lanyon physically connect with the subject matter. This can be as sensory as taste or smell.

“Place” is where everything comes together. It is the presentation and identification of the complete work.

For Lanyon, paint is very physical and she endeavours to exploit it fully. Paint is an organic substance with which she engages and which she seeks never to restrict-  not  led by emotion but not denying it has its place within the work.

Lanyon works on the edge of both intellect and vision, whilst giving the paint permission to develop its own identity.

The paintings for the exhibition have come together over the last two years from time spent in England, Italy, Slovenia and France, where Lanyon absorbed from, and was inspired by, the places visited.

Some of the smaller works were created in situ and comprise more figurative elements. The larger works were painted in the studio in Wandsworth. Deborah Lanyon says: " I enjoy the lapse of time between first seeing a space - when and where it was - to the moment when the painting is realised. This lapse allows ideas to be digested and synthesised. As a painter this enables me to keep the work fresh, hold my engagement and keep the work alive."
