British painter Paul Winstanley to lecture at Falmouth

We’re delighted to welcome British Painter Paul Winstanley to Falmouth to give the next Falmouth School of Art Lecture.

Winstanley uses the traditional genres of Landscape / Interior / Still Life / Figure / to create works that present the relationship of the viewer to the painting as central to the content of the work. At once methodical and melancholic his painterly depictions of landscapes, walkways, veiled windows, TV Lounges, art school studios and individuals distracted in contemplation are rendered in an exacting and subtle palette.

Drawing on historical northern European artists such as Caspar David Friedrich and Vermeer, as well as contemporary practitioners such as Richard Hamilton, Winstanley creates a sense of imposed order, an atmosphere of time inexorably passing.

Born in Manchester in 1954, Winstanley has exhibited widely and over the past two decades has had regular solo exhibitions in London, Paris, Munich and New York. His first retrospective was held at the Auckland Art Space in New Zealand in 2008, and in 1998 he had a solo show at the Tate Gallery, Millbank His work is represented in numerous public and private collections, including the collections of Tate, the British Council, the European Parliament, the New York City Public Library and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles.

Free but strictly by ticket from The Falmouth School of Art Eventbrite.

The Falmouth School of Art Lectures give our students a unique opportunity to hear from established and high profile artists and practitioners. We make some seats available at each lecture to friends of the School and members of the public.
