Galleries 2015

IV

The painter David Remfry RA had a clear starting point for the selection of works in this gallery. He was drawn to pieces that echoed one of his own preoccupations: an examination of the textures of fibre and hair, as wonderfully demonstrated in his painting in Gallery III of a woman surrounded by birds, her long hair appearing to merge with the branches of the trees behind.  

Remfry initially assumed that the room would contain mainly figurative works, but abstract paintings have found a place here too; he notes that abstraction and figuration are in fact ‘not as dissimilar as might be expected’. When selecting pieces he welcomed strong works of any genre, interested in the differing directions in which they would take the hang.
