Paul trained at Bath Academy of Art and has lived and worked in North Wiltshire as a teacher and artist for about forty years. He has exhibited widely in the UK and has work in many private collections.
“The drive to make art derives from childhood. I constantly remind myself that art is so serious and life is so short that making art must be fun. Naturally fun has a price - routine and the rigorous practice of drawing.
My working process is driven by discovery rather than plan. This often starts when I find, by chance, an object, place, image or situation which resonates in some as yet indefinable way. Typically I will draw in 2D and 3D, paint, write about, film, sound record, and any other exploratory means to find some reasons for the attraction and to make some objectives.
My outcomes are most often paintings, which may result from developmental work in drawing, collage, composition and three dimensions. They tend to be scenarios for interpretation rather than descriptions to be understood." - Paul Deacon

Bring a friend to make this a social occasion in the lead up to Christmas.

Watercolour paintings by Stephen Chapman and acrylic paintings by Roger Ellicott; selected to be shown together by LT Gallery for this exhibition.
Roger creates wonderful spaces in his paintings which often have a poetic presence, or set the scene of a narrative; lying somewhere between the real and imaginary. For this show we have included a selection of his paintings which derive from landscapes or trees to correlate with Stephen's current work, but the subject matter of his paintings varies. Stephen's paintings have their own feel or mood which is more ethereal; sometimes moving into abstraction.
There are more details and images on our website.
