Staffordshire St Paint Talk present A Painting Show. Taking inspiration from the work of Francisco Goya (1746 - 1842), 28 painters will exhibit an entire spectrum of work.


A Painting Show seeks to reflect and embody the endless possibilities of paint. Expansive, immersive abstraction, a varying trail of graphic language, observed reality, canvases turned in on themselves, portraits, patterns, all manner of heads, architectural structures, collaged, stitched, scored, dense surfaces, saturated colour, coupled with the precise rendering of matter. The scale of approach and matter are wide and sweeping.
