Views from the Thames by Ed J Bucknell, 1st April – 31st May. Monday to Sunday 10am – 5pm.
The River Thames is my main source of inspiration, as it has been to generations of artists before me. I love the historic architecture and variety of the riverfront, the different views of the great landmarks and the constantly changing atmospheric skies. Reflections on the water always make me want to paint and draw.
‘Views from the Thames’ is the subject of this exhibition because it is such a key component of my art. My current work incorporates pieces of discarded marble found on the shore, which display their own history in the natural staining and patina created over time. Each of the resulting pieces is unique, with the patination dictating the artwork in its own original way.
I have been fortunate to have exhibited in several London galleries and have had several images appear in print publications. I am happy to consider commissions. In my day job I am an architect in a practice near London Bridge. I live near the river opposite Rotherhithe, and as well as sketching and painting for pleasure I enjoy kayaking on the Thames.
The exhibition of paintings by Ed J Bucknall will be at the Brunel Museum cafe gallery until the end of May, everyday 10am – 5pm
