Birmingham art enthusiasts are in for a treat this weekend when acclaimed artist, Lawrence Coulson, launches his new collection A Darker Light at Castle Fine Art in the International Convention Centre (ICC).
The artist will be in attendance from 1-4pm giving visitors the unique opportunity to see him paint live as well as understand the ideas and inspiration behind his latest works.
Coulson is best known for his oil paintings which bring dramatic open spaces and alluring skylines to life. He takes particular influence from his local landscape near the Cambridgeshire Fens and names 19th century Romantic painters, J.M.W Turner and Frederic Edwin Church, as guiding influences, along with his father, celebrated artist Gerald Coulson.
Coulson began working on A Darker Light following a visit to the Affordable Art Fair which left him feeling inspired by the quality of work and techniques used by other landscape artists. He has paid particular attention to the use of colour in the collection by opting to use a stronger more powerful palette. Through the use of warm oranges, deep blues and ethereal purples, Coulson has succeeded in evoking a surreal sense of serenity from each oil painting.
