ARTIST OF THE MOMENT
Lee Herring is a contemporary painter specialising in colourful, textured and abstracted landscapes. He was born in Sunderland, in the North East of England and graduated with a First-Class honours degree from the University of Chester.
His contemporary abstract landscapes are colourful, textured and full of life. They are inspired by his every day, normal life! Things you and I wouldn’t notice... he draws inspiration from. Countryside strolls, posters, textiles, sunsets, transport, the list goes on. He captures snippets of colour and memorises details from fleeting scenes. He uses spray paints, markers and acrylics to create layers of textured backdrops. Bold layers are manipulated to reveal hidden chinks of buried colour.
Each painting evolves in a free-flowing, spontaneous process, with every mark influencing the next. Lee Herring's paintings could literally go in any direction. Pallet knives, trowels and scrapers are his main tools. Brushes are banned! This allows for a really loose and energetic application and he is continuing to push contemporary boundaries. Layer upon layer upon layer is built up, creating the abstracted and expressional more than representational.
