An exhibition of paintings by Stephen Redpath
June 9th-16th 2023
Opening on June 9th 1800 -2100
Then June 10-16th 0900 -1700
I first met Steve when we worked together on an artist/ scientist collaboration looking at environmental conflicts. The event brought together artists and scientists with a view to finding new ways to express these concerns.
It immediately became apparent to me that Steve could have been there in either category, as he already had the understanding and aesthetic appreciation of an artist despite the lack of a formal training. The transition of his career has been seamless, and I have watched on in admiration as he has used an uncanny photographic memory alongside an emotional response to capture a lifetime of landscapes in watercolour. His commitment to painting and willingness to explore and push himself has resulted in a body of work far larger and more impressive than many who have gone down the more conventional route.
This exhibition is a chance to see some of these works and witness Steve’s process as well as the paintings themselves.
