Tired Pelicans at the Yorkshire Gallery.. Roo Waterhouse Art

If you’re at the Piece Hall in Halifax, pop in to the Yorkshire Gallery and you’ll find some Tired Pelicans taking refuge there….

Wonderful words!

”Public accomplishments and hidden secrets. Old Friends and loves lost. Simple jokes and profound truths. This bookshelf encapsulates half a century of the inside of my head. More intimate and more telling than any facial portrait could ever be.

As tromp d’oeil, only the larger than life scale gives the game away. Roo’s talent is to both abstract and reproduce the worn history of these much loved books. Working with Roo was a delight, her care and artistic judgement shining through at every step.”

‘Properties of Matter’

Down to London last week to deliver my latest bespoke Shelf-Portrait,

‘Properties of Matter’

My largest book painting to date at 50×100″ it was an absolute joy to paint 🙂

Very pleased with the result, as is the new owner!

Fantastic Framing!

I really love these dark brown stained and wax ‘tray’ frames which Abacus Picture Framing make for my Shelf Portraits… My new work for Affordable Art Fair Battersea (8th-11th March) is looking fantastic 🙂

… Although I certainly cannot claim to have ‘invented a whole new genre’, artists have been painting shelves of books since bookshelves were invented!!
