Evening on the Orwell
Graham Webber ROI IEA | Oil on Board | 20 x 30 inches
Graham is a self taught artist, finding motivation and inspiration amongst his peers. He started painting at the age of thirteen and began selling work to teachers at school and was asked to produce a painting for the school’s collection before leaving. After finishing A’level art as one of the top students for the year in the country, Graham was included in the examination boards calendar. After college Graham worked at the Albert Sloman Library who also hold one of his paintings in their collection. His first solo show was held on Mersea Island where 27 of 30 paintings were sold, since then Graham has been exhibiting across East Anglia and London.
This new body of work focusses on the sense of place and atmosphere that is unique to East Anglia. Expansive skies play a dominant role in influencing the landscape and how we see the landscape: a dense atmosphere pushes back the distance, and subdues colours and contrast, whereas a clear light helps colours to ‘pop’ and definition increases. Graham sets out to explore this intriguing relationship between the East Anglian skies and the landscape, within his paintings.
