Product Description

Westminster Heat by Paul Kenton

This was a ‘happy accident’. It’s all black underpainting, with oils on metal. The light was added afterwards. I kept the style loose, as this piece is more about mood than accuracy. I like to try new techniques – sometimes it works out and you learn something new. I like the looseness, and the angle from the beach is low so you can see the tide on the beach.

Like the Impressionist painters before him, Paul tries to evoke moods and emotions with his colour, free shapes and dripped lines.

Citing Monet’s early works amongst his greatest influences, he goes to great lengths to accurately capture light in his work. Often he will paint similar scenes at different times of the day, from an early dawn across the Thames to a balmy Parisian dusk.

Paul’s technique is free and unplanned; he chooses to forego sketching and planning in favour of delving into the heart of the painting to relive his feelings and memories of the cityscape within.

In a mode akin to the mercurial properties of molten metal, the latest collection by acclaimed contemporary artist Paul Kenton, Metallique, demonstrates a shift in both his style and medium of choice. Favouring the traditional support of canvas in his career to date, these latest pieces, painted onto sheet of metal, are on exciting tangent to his already impressive portfolio.

Using sheet aluminium and other metals as his base allows Kenton to illuminate his work as never before, to wield the ambient light in such a way that it becomes intrinsic to the finished piece, By allowing the metal to show through the layers of paint, the overall composition takes on a new dimension and gives a greater sense of depth and life within the scene.

The Key to Kenton’s ongoing prominence within the UK art scene is his inexhaustible desire to elevate his output through continued experimentation. As such, Metallique represents the latest epoch in Kenton’s evolution.
