Rod Harman – BlackShed Gallery

last night at the private view of Rod Harman’s wonderful exhibition ‘Skin Deep’ at the Blackshed Gallery, Russet Farm, Robertsbridge , TN32 5NG

I am thrilled to spend time with my former tutor, the irrepressible Rod Harman from Hastings school of Art and technology who’s encouragement, 36 years ago probably set me on the road to be a painter, he saw something in me I didn’t even recognise yet and I’m so grateful for his generous support and inspiring teaching ; so glad I went to this beautiful show, in the stunning space and setting . Thank you to Kenton Lowe the gallery owner for taking this photograph .

#Repost @kate_scott_paintings @get_repost_easily #repost_easily ****** Excited to have managed to finish this large painting ‘Night Vision’- acrylic on canvas so many layers, some very seductive but not carrying the meaning I intended until now . I am thinking about moonlit nights walking home through the empty roads in the dark ,shadows of the trees against the deep inky sky and the glimmers of moonlight lightening up the shadows; cosey darkness, not forbidding ; rich dark colours I’ve never managed to sustain on this scale before , so feeling grateful . Nice to have another one ready with all the preparations for @art_at_zerbs . . . . #inthestudio #grateful#artistsofinstagram #creative #nocturnal #artisticsupport #Instaart #brightonopenhouses #acrylicpainting #communication #abstractart #contemporaryartist #worthwhile #interiordesign #happyplaces #artdealer #calledtobecreative #deep #nightvision #modernart #kunst #soothing #britishartist #artcurators #avantgarde #fineart #moodygrams #inthestudio #artistsopenhouses

Painting in studio yesterday , starting with a dark colour for a change , to see what that brings , filmed by my daughter, I didn’t realise how much the rhythm of the music affected my mark making . Am starting to get ready for exhibiting at Art at Zerb’s open house ,188 Dyke Road , Brighton, BN1 in may 2019 as part of the Brighton festival #artistsopenhouses
