Exhibitions > CORK STREET ARTIST EDWARD BEALE - SOLO EXHIBITION
17th June 2011 - 9th July 2011
We are delighted and honoured to welcome back to Gallery LeFort, in his very first solo Exhibition to be held in Bath, the very popular and highly collectable Cork Street artist, Edward Beale to exhibit with over thirty impasto paintings and some drawings.
Edward Beale is a modern figurative painter. He uses oil paint in a vigorous and robust way resulting in exciting, contemporary images. His approach can be traced to a grounding in the traditional disciplines of close observation and drawing. A London painter born and bred he trained at Camberwell and the Royal Academy Schools.
Important subjects for Edward are the ever-changing urban landscapes around his Lambeth home and along the Thames. As well as London he finds inspiration in the Outer Hebrides, Paris (from a barge on the Seine), the foothills of the Pyrenees, the Dordogne, and recently the Castile region of Spain. He also makes portraits, life-paintings, flower paintings and other still-life studies.
The power in his paintings comes from the tension between the solidity of their structure and the flamboyance and verve in the application of paint. The artist’s imagination and vision radiates out of the work as you look at it on the wall. His work is in private collections all over the world. His paintings can be seen at Petley’s Gallery in London, The Chelsea Art Gallery and now at Gallery Le Fort in Bath.
Edward’s next solo exhibition in Cork Street will be held at Petley's, Fine Art Dealers commencing 27April
`The Rendered Earth’

London Evening Standard Editor, Geordie Greig, is available at Petley’s
