Graham Ward: 2017 – 2018
Cyma Gallery, 55 the Old High Street
Private view: Fri 4 May, 6 – 8pm
Fri 4 May – 4 Jul
Cyma Gallery are delighted to present Graham Ward’s new work, loosely entitled Child Kings and Holy Fools.
An abiding influence on Graham’s work has been the ancient Spanish school of painters, and his use of tempera and gold leaf in many of his works reflects an interest in the sacred aspects of representational subject-matter. Working largely on board, his use of modern acrylics work suitably with the methods of the 12th and 13th century painters of the Romanesque, where tempera painting was popular.
