Following a Lime Tree
Following a Lime Tree by John Blandy
14 September to 15 October 2010
John Blandy combines an abstract style of painting with a constant alertness to change, mood and movement in landscape. The aim is to give a feeling of being there, in a collection of moments. The work in this exhibition comes together in a storybook of change, highlighting the difference while reinforcing the constant cycle of growth and decay. The work has developed from sites John Blandy has painted over many years: Queen’s Park, a short stretch on the Seacourt near Oxford and a farmhouse in the Charente, France. ‘Following a Lime tree’ began in 1997. The artist has built a series of over 2000 pastels that track the changes of weather and season as he paints this lime tree in the park on a daily basis.
John Blandy, a graduate of the Royal College of Art, has been represented by Cassian de Vere Cole Fine Art (2001-3) and the Francis Kyle Gallery (1985-95). His work is part of the permanent collections in Hammersmith Hospital and St George’s Hospital, Tooting and many private collections.
