As his undoubted popularity as one of our leading contemporary English landscape painters increases so does the size and intense power of Anthony Giles' Seascapes.

This latest collection of new paintings is the culmination of hours of sketching and painting Kent’s interesting and varied coastline. The perspicacity of this increasingly popular artist shows with every brush stroke and colour glaze that identifies the sea as one of nature’s most powerful forces. He is consciously moving away from the recognisable form and construction of his earlier work and is, instead, moving towards an almost abstract form that conveys power and transient light above everything else, which, is to all intense and purpose what the sea is all about. Rainclouds dark and leaden above a foaming foreshore with just a glimmer of light on the horizon, or a summer squall moving quickly across a beach or harbour that obliterates all light and shape are everything that Anthony loves about living and working on the Kent coast.

Our Featured Artist

Max Angus SWLA

New Work now in
Including the newly released
'Looking out for You'

4-Block Linocut

Max Angus is a painter and printmaker; born in Mortlake, London and now living and working in a small village in Kent.
The Society of Wildlife Artists (SWLA) is one of the societies represented by the FBA (Federation of British Artists, The Mall Galleries, London). In November 2012, the members of the SWLA have elected for Max Angus to become a full member of the society.
The SWLA annual exhibition, ‘The Natural Eye’ is held at The Mall Galleries, Federation of British Artists, The Mall, London and is now in its 49th year. In previous years at the annual SWLA exhibition Max Angus had been awarded ‘The St Cuthbert’s Paper Mill Award’ and ‘The Birds Illustrated Magazine Printmaking Award’.
“My work is often inspired by the everyday environment around me. From the village trees to off season trips to North Norfolk to see migrating geese and coastal bird reserves. I continue to maintain an A4 sketchbook with additional inserts of scrap paper. The limited detail captured with a pencil on paper is just enough for the outlines for linocuts. In my studio, my sketchbook then becomes the catalyst for my next series of work.”
“I produce small print runs of original linocuts. Over the past four years I have been exploring how far I can push a three block linocut for the maximum effect of an image. The blocks are cut first considering light, shade and overlapping of colours to make additional colour combinations. The limited palette may often take three weeks to finalise the three block colours. Each colour chosen is dependent on the relationship and quantity of the adjacent colours and the overlapping blocks. If the image requires additional colours then the need for additional blocks overrides my desire to use only three.”
