Studio Sale | Grace Crabtree (1/15)


“This view from the Ribble Valley is one I have kept returning to in my paintings and drawings since visiting it in the summer. The memory of the colours, forms, and textures of the fellside has merged with the physical memory of these multiple attempts to capture the scene, of building up and scratching into the delicate layers of rich pigment.” – 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 and drawings inspired from 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.
