Notes


“A landscape from the Ribble Valley which I have painted a number of times is reimagined here in the gloaming, capturing the deep blue of a sky just past sunset, which hovers between the bright of day and dark of night. Shortly afterwards, I came across a phrase for ‘twilight’ in Spanish: entre dos luces, meaning ‘between two lights’, seems to describe this twilight hue.” – Grace Crabtree, 2022

Grace Crabtree is a figurative painter whose work shifts between historical and contemporary references, and between the human figure and landscape. Grace draws from traditions of fresco and icon painting, developing an individual style using egg tempera, which provides the paintings with a delicate and luminous quality. This studio sale offers some earlier works which bring a contemporary twist to ancient myths and stories, and more recent paintings inspired by the landscapes of West Dorset and the Lake District.

Grace Crabtree is an artist based in Bridport, West Dorset. Since graduating from the Ruskin School of Art in 2019, Grace has exhibited in a number of group exhibitions, and undertaken two artist residencies (DRAWinternational, Caylus, France, and Zaratan AIR, Lisbon, Portugal). She is currently enrolled on a second year of the Turps Correspondence Course.
