Euphoria

New Paintings and Prints for sale
Kalendar, Swains Lane
July - October 2022

 

Figurative painter - Vanessa Brassey - is delighted to be resident at Kalendar in Highgate from July to October 2022. Her waterscapes, landscapes, and portraits celebrate the quiet euphoria of swimming in the Hampstead Ponds. Pictures will change throughout the residency.

Brassey makes paintings that are energetic, cheerful, and beautiful. They are not photorealist paintings, but increasingly she introduces elements of fine detail combined with a mischievous and irreverent use of colour.  Blending direct observation with photographic evidence and a bright palette the workds convey how it feels to be endlessly beguiled and moved by the complexity and possibilities of our shared planet by capturing those transient feelings that make up the quicksilver of our lives.
