Andrew Hood

Sarah Wiseman Gallery is thrilled to present a new series of paintings by acclaimed and highly sought-after artist Andrew Hood. Based at Jamaica Street studios in Bristol, Andrew Hood has worked with Sarah Wiseman Gallery for many years, establishing a firm relationship and collector base. He will show a series of recent paintings throughout June.

Making several trips abroad each year, Andrew’s paintings are born from detailed, lively location sketches. Andrew builds a sense of movement and atmosphere in his work through expressive mark making and mixed media. It is his aim for the viewer to see beyond a picturesque location as he captures an elemental energy of time and place.
To do this he will often seek out a high-up view point in order to see the liveliness of a particular place, observing the hum of the people, traffic and changing light. Back in the studio, working from his gathered drawings, Andrew will surround himself with paint, and by quickly pouring, scraping marks on the canvas, he builds a painting that is like his sketches, vibrant and alive with movement.

Now on Show: Steven MacIver

Keeping within our abstract theme for the moment, we've got beautiful new paintings by Steven MacIver now on show. Much of Steven's work is an exploration of spaces, both interior and exterior, described by the lines he 'excavates' using intersecting lines and planes. 

These stunning new works are a continuation of study and exploration of Steven's native Orkney Islands, in particular the ancient and mysterious standing stones at Ring of Brodgar. Steven has turned his attention to this theme after many years of living away from home, finding the mental space to observe these sites with an objective eye.

Currently he lives and works in Oxfordshire, and is working on private commissions and towards a solo show in New York.

'Venice' by Robin Pickering

There's a beautiful new collection of pastel drawings by Robin Pickering. These smaller works are a lovely interpretation of the soft lights of an atmospheric city, where Robin makes regular trips. '"From the moment I first arrived in Venice – stepping onto a vaporetto on the Grand Canal one February evening during the carnival – I have been bewitched by this extraordinary city.  Whenever I go there something stirs in me, ' he explains.
