New painting arrival: Greg Irvine’s immersive and meticulously detailed “Staircase in Provence”, 122x198cm, oil on canvas 2019, available.
Combining still life objects into an alluring French streetscape, this painting is bursting with colour and charm. The artist’s career spans fifty years, having achieved a maturity of wit, observation and expression. Irvine’s artistic mother collected objects, curios and made pottery, which shaped his eye for the exotic and vintage. Irvine documents the minutiae of the artist’s life and environment through paint, and in doing so, elevates the viewer out of the banal, into the realm of the sublime. Irvine’s world is the world of elaborate interiors, sunlit, burnished by light and colour, and the exquisite patterning of objects.
