Spectrum is the latest solo exhibition from contemporary painter David Armitage. One of the Uk’s leading exponents of painterly abstraction, he has been described as a ‘supreme colourist’, and garnered respect from fellow artists and critics, as well as enjoying successful exhibitions both nationally and internationally.
Over several decades Armitage’s work has shifted, grown and developed. Fine tuning his technique through a combination of experimentation, planning, and practice, has led him to be described as ‘one of the UK’s leading colourists.’ As with many of the Abstract Expressionists before him inspiration and subject matter are as wide as the human condition. Life, death, passion, and tragedy are all here glowing through the washes or struck across ambiguous backgrounds in fervent brush strokes of searing colour.
Spectrum runs from 25 February - 19 March 2017 at The Birley Centre, Carlisle Road, Eastbourne, BN21 1RW. Open Saturdays and Sundays only 10am - 4pm. (1pm-4pm Sat 4 March)
