Joint Exhibition - Robert Greenhalf, Matt Underwood & Anthony Theakston

15  OCTOBER 2020 - 10 JANUARY 2021

This joint exhibition presents paintings and prints by Robert Greenhalf and Matt Underwood alongside sculptures by Anthony Theakston.

Robert Greenhalf’s work is well known to our audience and this will be Robert’s fifth exhibition at Waterston House. Robert lives in the South East of England, near Romney Marsh where he finds much of his subject matter. Robert explains his approach: “The evening is my favourite time of day for sketching and painting in the field. Colours harmonise then and there is more activity amongst my bird subjects, but a quick response is required to capture the rapidly changing light and movement. I sketch feverishly in pencil, sometimes adding watercolour to act as an aide memoire for when I'm back in the studio creating a woodcut or oil painting.” For this exhibition, Robert is joined by two new exhibitors at Waterston House: Matt Underwood and Anthony Theakston.

Matt Underwood, a member of the Society of Wildlife Artists (SWLA), is a painter and printmaker with a very personal take on the subject of wildlife. His woodblock prints, in particular, are widely collected for their bold colours and designs. Matt is based in Lincoln.

Anthony Theakston is a sculptor working in both ceramics and bronze. Anthony studied ceramics for six years in Bristol and Cardiff and lectured at Camberwell College of Art before establishing his own studio. Over the past few years Anthony has increasingly focused on producing bronze sculptures alongside ceramics. Anthony’s pared-down style aims to capture a bird’s essential traits with minimal detail. His work is held by several major UK museum collections. Anthony lives in Lincolnshire.

More work by these and other wildlife artists can be found in our online art shop.
