Marcus lampard New Paintings and Drawings

Marcus lampard
New Paintings and Drawings
Weekends 7th-8th, 14th-15th 21st-22nd May
In this his first exhibition at The Last Gallery, Marcus exhibits his paintings and rugs. In his paintings Marcus’s intention is to capture a moment on a two dimensional surface. His work is not necessarily representational but has its own world. His rugs are works of art in themselves and are drawn from the original paintings.
The tree series was completed while spending time in Italy and was created through a process of fragmentation and ordered reconstruction (influenced by Paul Klee). The repeated patterns that result challenge and entertain the eye and are reminiscent of orphic cubism, a technique invented by the artists Robert and Sonia Delaunay.
Symbols used in his work are largely universal, the rainbow depicting a promise, the rainbow rug symbolizing reconciliation and connection.
Marcus was born in Nairobi, East Africa 1943 but was brought up in Aberporth, Cardiganshire. He attended University of Lausanne and graduated from Chelsea School of Art. In 1970 he returned to farm in Wales. He currently lives and works in Llangadog.
He has exhibited widely in Perugia, Italy, England and Wales. Marcus continues to paint and make rugs; commissions take 3 months from ordering. You can see view his many rugs and paintings on his website.
