Studio Sale | Grace Crabtree (5/15)


“In the past two years, I have started to paint from the landscape, from the Dorset hills and Jurassic coastline. This imaginary scene took inspiration from the hill above my house, where the scrubby grass and rolling landscape turn blue in the summer dusk.” – 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.
