Artist

Brendan Lancaster

Brendan works in a quiet, peaceful studio. In the summer with the windows open he can hear the ducks in the city farm over the road, and the conversations of people passing in the street. He has been painting for over 20 years, and has explored many styles and subjects over that time, showing work widely in galleries across the UK.
He says about his process: "For my subjects, when I see someone doing something interesting, or boring, that I think will make a picture, I take a photo, and store these up for potential paintings. I work out the composition in my sketchbook to simplify it down to the essentials before starting on the canvas." Brendan also takes inspiration from reading, most recently from Japanese fiction, in particular Banana Yoshimoto and Mieko Kawakami, for the way they show that the details of our lives really matter.

"I paint moments from everyday life, family, and friends doing the ordinary things we hardly notice in passing. Translating from photos and sketches, I love to explore my fascination with colour, light, shade, and close-up compositions that seem to tell a story." — Brendan Lancaster

In Praise of Home - An Online Exhibition

We're excited to present ‘In Praise of Home’, our new online exhibition.

“I've chosen to focus in on the kitchen table, the plants, flowers and especially the fruit bowl. These things are so ordinary, but if we look at them closely they are full of colour and energy. And tell us a story about the ebb and flow of family life.” - Brendan Lancaster

November Drop 2023

“These small objects have been dug out from forgotten corners around the home. I've shown them with a simple background, so that the personality of the little groups of pens, keys and knives can be seen.” - Brendan Lancaster, Small Objects

September Drop 2023

"I'm really enjoying exploring the small intimate scene that is created when you put these small objects next to each other, with the rough texture of the hessian in fact making the image seem even more delicate." - Brendan Lancaster, Still life

July Drop 2023

“These paintings are all about the way that objects have their own character and presence, but here they seem to almost dissolve in warm summer air. Recently I've been painting on hessian, primed with gesso. I love the way that the texture of the hessian gives these quiet scenes an atmosphere you can almost feel.” - Brendan Lancaster, Summer Light

May Drop 2023

"I love painting these little moments of everyday life. Things that I think other people will recognise too." - Bendan Lancaster, Late Spring

Feb Drop 2023

"Moments of everyday life in the kitchen with family and friends are the inspiration for this collection of new paintings. I love exploring close-cropped compositions, using the beautiful colours and qualities of oil paint to bring these immersive scenes to life." - Brendan Lancaster, In The Kitchen
