COLIN ORCHARD


Colin Orchard moved to St Ives in 1983 and a year later opened the Walker Galleries Contemporary gallery with a solo show. His evocative, muted, carefully constructed paintings have gained a devoted following. In this show we see this familiar approach; a red umbrella cuts through the grey mizzle, the interior of an art gallery lends form and structure, the life in squares is always at one remove. However, we also see in some of these new paintings, a brightening of the palette, and a sense of engagement that marks an interestingly different artistic direction. Colin has also had solo and mixed exhibitions in many galleries in the UK, including David Messum, Brian Sinfield, Medici Gallery, the Royal Academy Summer Exhibitions and the RBA annual exhibitions at the Mall Galleries, London. In 2007 he was elected a member of the Royal Society of British Artists Member of the St Ives Society of Artists Bibliography The Dictionary of British Artists since 1945, by David Buckman The Artist Who’s Who in Art St Ives 1975/2005 Art Colony in Transition by Peter Davies Publications Co-author Art About St Ives 2006 Designer/co-publisher Gasworks to Gallery – the Story of Tate St IveS
