​GIVE THEM SHELTER

As you may already know I have a new project for 2017 in aid of the homeless, -

The idea is a simple one: I have painted 50 unique and unrepeatable images of a house in a landscape; buy one of these paintings and, (for the price of a meal for two, or a visit to the hairdresser), you will get an original work of art and charities for the homeless will get the proceeds of sale.

All 50 paintings will be exhibited at The Horsebridge Arts Centre Whitstable from 22nd November to 5th December, and all proceeds of sale will be donated to the charities Porchlight and Catching Lives. To see all 50 works, and information on how to pre-purchase please click on the button for "shop" above.

 

About my work

For those of you unfamiliar with my work I paint mainly in acrylics because life is too short to wait for oils to dry, My inspirations are the land,sea and townscapes of Britain; and my influences include Klee, Klimt, Hundertwasser, textiles, and traditional folk art.

When I paint I am constantly negotiating a position between opposing forces:  the abstract and the figurative, the structured and the intuitive, the real and the imaginary; they all meet and shake hands in my works but my main  aim is to create harmonies of colour and form that intrigue the eye and cheer the heart 

Anyway enough of that; please feel free to have a wander round the site, I  hope you enjoy my work and if you want to contact me further you can reach me at jsharvatt@yahoo.co.uk
