Sunday Matinée

Please meet Nigel Sharman today. The Brighton born and trained textile designer is currently working and living in London.

I really like his pictures. They are sober and romantic at the same time, I think.

Mr. Sharman says about himself and his art:

[I became an artist because I was] dragged round the galleries of West Penwith in Cornwall as a small boy by my father and introduced to work by Alfred Wallis and Ben Nicholson.

Maybe in ten years time I will be fully abstract. I can’t just throw paint around and pretend it means something to me. I want to evolve and fully understand the thought processes and practices of those artists of the mid twentieth century who inspire me.
