During July this year Kieron Williamson staged his eighth ‘sell out’ exhibition celebrating his unique talent as a world renown art prodigy. During this exhibition buyers from around the world secured his original paintings and unprecedented numbers of visitors to the gallery had the pleasure in watching Kieron paint and marvelled at his stunning works of art.
Since July Kieron has visited Cornwall with his family and has assembled a small collection of sketches from his holiday, undertaken en plein air, these beautiful works capture subjects which have inspired generations of painters before him such as Sir Alfred Munnings, Stanhope Forbes and Sir Walter Langley to name but a few.
Now finishing his new book, which will be released during the July exhibition in 2018, Kieron took the time to write the following passage about his new works …
“2016 saw a shift in my work to large figurative studies of people who work the landscape and seascape around me. 2017 has seen the progression of this interest. Large scale studies of horsemen, farmers and fishermen.
In between exhibitions I am fortunate to spend a lot of time painting en plein air. With a compact Pochade box resting on my knees, these small field studies capture moments in time from my travels in Cornwall and explorations of the Norfolk countryside, my intention is always to glean the essence of light and movement of that passing moment in time.” Kieron Williamson 2017
