Congratulations to our former student, Maureen Nathan, who has two paintings accepted for this year’s National Open Art Competition.
She says “these are from a series called Abandoned Farms, exploring the theme of emptiness and abandonment in the English countryside. This reveals itself through the absence of activity in the rural landscape and its agricultural buildings. This work is based on field study in Dorset with paintings begun en plein air and finished in the studio.”
The exhibition opens today at Somerset House, London WC2R 1LA. It continues until the 25th October.
