The George Farnham Gallery

Featuring works by artist Stephen Watkins

Stephen Watkin’s striking images are very much a nod to the old style of drawing that architects used to use, only with brushes instead of pens. This is perhaps not surprising as Stephen’s background is in architecture.

The pieces in this exhibition ARTchitecture are as much about memories and moments as they are about buildings. Every painting in this show has a story behind it … or stories in front of them, yet to unfold.

The places we have been to become part of us and places we want to visit hold their own image in our mind’s eye.

“I hope that each piece here helps someone commemorate something important, and unique, in their life. If anything I create manages to do that, then I’ve had a good day as an artist”

Stephen Watkins
