Paintings Out of Japan, Sea Notes from Devon / Caroline Romer

Caroline Romer & The Coningsby Gallery welcome you to Caroline’s 25th solo show, now that restrictions permit.

Many of the paintings in this exhibition were painted during ‘lockdown’ this year. For those of us who need solitude to work that period was a gift of time.

A number of the paintings are inspired by a journey to Japan last year. Flying into the country at the time of the typhoon Higabis, some of the work reflects the wetness and grey skies. However, the unsettled weather made me search for colour in the interiors, gardens and the ‘Onsen’ public baths. The strong primary colour and design of the 18th and 19th century woodblock prints of the Edo period were an influence in the making of these pictures.

Also in the exhibition are paintings from the Devon coast. I call the work Sea Notes as I work directly from nature on the cliffs and the rocks. I have lived by the ocean for three years and it is the most compelling subject.
