Philip Sanderson: Places, People and Light. @ Highgate Gallery
Apr 3 @ 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Philip Sanderson  Highgate Hill, oil on canvas.

We are delighted to shows a significant body of work from acclaimed local artist Philip Sanderson, who captures townscapes and other scenes from a wide variety of sources, particularly London and Highgate.  He aims for a lightness of touch and fluidity that is at once engaging and appealing.  At the same time, his work retains a discipline and structure that gives it weight, so that the overall impression is one of beauty and substance.

Philip paints in oils and watercolours and says that he “endeavours to represent subjects in a loose and attractive way”.  His work is particularly concerned with the effect of light, particularly sunlight, and how this gives subtly contrasting tones of light and dark to his subject matter.  He often depicts people in his pictures, representing life and movement and adding another layer of interest and relevance to the familiar local scenes.

For many years an active member of the Highgate Watercolour Group and a participant in art courses and local art shows, Philip also had a career in the NHS, where he was a consultant microbiologist working in Edgware and Barnet.  He studied problems of infections acquired within hospitals and helped to found and edit a journal dedicated to this subject.

This exhibition is an opportunity to see a collection of pictures from the last five years, following a successful exhibition at St. Martin-in-the-Fields.  Most of the works are oils; all work will be for sale.

Exhibition continues until 9 April.

Highgate Gallery open Tuesday-Friday 1-5pm, Saturday 11am-4pm, Sunday 11am-5pm; closed Mondays.
