Brian Hodgson

Brian Hodgson has recently returned to painting full time after an inspiring period working in Kenya  and was rewarded with his first London

exhibition. He picks simple subjects - an abandoned bench; the handle of a spade resting on a leaf strewn wall; the cool blue water of a

swimming pool, baking terracotta tiles and the intricate shadow of an unseen table; a curtain billowing from a half open window - to create

intriguing pictures. The photographic quality of his paintings is enhanced by the skillful play of light and shade. The exhibition continues from

September 14th to November 3rd 2007
