left Martin LEMAN - Hampton Court right

British Contemporary Artist: Martin Leman RBA

Painting: Hampton Court

Many of Martin Leman''s Contemporary Art paintings explore English Manor Houses and their idyllic gardens through the use of oil paints. Leman composes his paintings as if they were taken from a tiny section of a photograph. This method of enclosing the landscape and unveiling just a fragment of the vista creates a sense of boundless expanse.

Leman''s contemporary painting depicts rich lawns brimming with curvaceous hedges. Focus is prompted to bounce from one hedge to the other until discovering in comparison, the somewhat discreet linear Manor House. Tonal colours abound - from the subtle yellow hew of freshly cut lawns to deep green hedges against the gently calm blue sky at dusk. The flatness of the paint together with the primitive landscape forms add a sense of stillness and simplicity.

Martin Leman highlights the strong forms throughout his paintings by depicting these landscapes scenes at nightfall. The definite shadows add depth throughout, accompanied by the saturation of a dusky sky distinctive of a hot summers day closing to an end.

''Hampton Court'' is synergistic with Leman''s other garden landscape paintings but unlike others it does not depict a Manor House. What is left is a simplified landscape made up of asymmetrical forms. This leaves the viewer questioning the somewhat ambiguous scene.

In addition to Red Rag British Art Gallery Martin Leman has exhibited at other leading British and International Art Galleries. Each painting at Red Rag is sourced from the Martin Leman artist studio and like all Red Rag British Art and Contemporary Art it can be shipped worldwide.
