Art - Philip Sutton RA
We are proud to showcase the work of talented contemporary British artists at Great Fosters and are currently exhibiting 'Woodcuts 1960s-1970s' by Royal Academy Artist Philip Sutton.
Philip Sutton RA has spent more than six decades as a professional artist. He still paints and draws every day and his work is alive with colour. His subject matter varies from landscapes and flowers to portraits and nudes and his unbounded energy has taken him in numerous directions, including lithography. His best and most characteristic prints are the result of cutting patterns on wood. In his most intensive printmaking years around 1970, he travelled as far afield as Fiji, carrying with him thin wooden boards that he would gouge out an image to be printed on his return home. His use of colour in these woodcuts demonstrates him to be a true colourist and the collection of work from the 1960s-1970s transcend time, looking as fresh today as they did 50 years ago and we are proud to be exhibiting Woodcuts 1960s - 1970s this Winter.
