Frank Wotton


Event Date:

From 9th May

Until 15th May


10am – 4.45pm daily except Sunday 11am – 4pm

I have worked in various mediums, including Stained Glass, Etching and Screen Print, but now concentrate on Painting. The work is a mix of Figurative and Abstract, usually suggesting a subtext to the painted forms. Like the cave dwellers of the primitive past, I paint what I observe. My paintings reference artefacts from the ancient world and fragments of historical and contemporary culture because this is the collage that surrounds us. Although I don’t necessarily believe in the content of myths, religious stories or fairy tales, I can’t help but admire their creative ingenuity. From the allegorical myths of the Greeks to the messages of medieval and Renaissance stained glass, through to the “Two Fried Eggs and a Kebab” of Sarah Lucas, the surface is not always the whole picture and it is left to the viewer to find their own narrative, or not.
