John Maxwell-Steele’s paintings explore an emotional relationship with landscape. His canvases seek to capture the effects of time on the English countryside he knows so well. This new exhibition, ‘The Field’, brings together some of his most poetic meditations on the interplay between ground and sky – a landscape of life captured in paint.
John Maxwell-Steele was born in Birmingham in the sixties and first studied Visual Communications at Solihull College of Art in the early eighties. In 2002 he completed a post-graduate Fine Art degree at Birmingham University.
He began exhibiting in 2004 and in 2007 exhibited at the Birmingham Museum and Art gallery. Since then he has continued to evolve his practice achieving recognition through solo and group shows.
See the artist’s work at this year’s Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2016, 13 June - 26 August.
We are delighted to be holding this, his first exhibition at the gallery.
Speaking about the exhibition, Director of the Brian Sinfield Gallery Miranda Marks, said “It has strength, beauty and great appeal and we hope you find it as exciting as we do.”
