Andrew Lansley & Mike Service
8 - 27 March

 

Sparse landscapes are often the intriguing theme of Andrew Lansley’s paintings, which use the open expanse of this subject, whether painted on wooden panels covered in a smooth gesso surface or on handmade paper, to explore the technique of layering the egg tempera paints that he mixes as he works. Lansley was selected as a winner of Bath Society of Artists’ ‘David Simon Contemporary Award’ in 2016.

Mike Service has long been painting both still life subjects and continental landscapes and in this exhibition he shows his latest series of work, which demonstrates his enjoyment and mastery of working in oils with brush and palette knife.

These two painters have each developed and honed their painting technique through their expert understanding and enjoyment of their chosen materials. It is this mastery of their medium that is a very evident strength that connects their work in this exhibition.
