Dreamscapes

Artists of the imaginary world, Finn Campbell-Notman, Robin Rae, Alfred Stockham and David West are all masters of the surreal, the strange, unsettling, humorous and beautiful.

Robin Rae ARCA (1928-2019)

Extraordinary success also marked Robin Rae’s early painting life. He first exhibited at the Royal British Academy in Young Contemporaries in 1946 when he was 18. After Ealing School of Art (1945-49) he went on to the Royal College of Art where his teachers included Francis Bacon, John Nash, Rodrigo Moynihan and Edward Bawden. By the time he was 21 he had had two successful solo shows at the Little Gallery in Piccadilly followed by an exhibition at the Ashmolean. In 1950, The Sunday Times critic Eric Newton described the ‘nerveless way’ he applied paint, calling him ‘an artist with a vision… distinguished not by its newness but by its completeness and intensity’. He put him ‘in the category of Stanley Spencer, Paul Nash and the Pre-Raphaelites’.

We are pleased to offer a selection of paintings by Robin Rae including three significant paintings from the 1950s and others spanning his lifetime of painting. His paintings are available to view below and to buy via phone +44 (0)1308 459511 or email gallery@sladersyard.co.uk.

Alfred Stockham ARCA RWA

Alfred Stockham ARCA RWA’s particular way of putting on paint , his knowledge and eye for colour and his ability to construct a perfect composition never ceases to delight and intrigue. Sadly Alfred died at the end of 2020 but we are pleased to show paintings, both abstract and more figurative from the last forty years of his life.

Alfred Stockham’s jewel-like paintings often convey the deepest imaginative force through the simplest of structures. His use of colour, shape and composition are based on a lifetime of study. Hours of contemplation went into each painting, resulting in works of extraordinary vision.

‘My aim is to create an underlying visual dynamic, a tension between the motifs in the painting so that the poetry of the subject and the poetry of the composition support each other. The real or observed world and the subconscious dream world both play their part to make a painting sing.’ Alfred Stockham
