A Painter’s Journey at Hedon Museum

For our last exhibition of the year, we have a show of impressionism. Painter Christopher Heald moved to the area only recently, having lived in London. Christopher likes to travel to find inspiration, and last year he spent time on the French and Italian Riviera, which inspired many beautiful works.

Given the very natural way he seems to paint, it is perhaps surprising that painting did not come to him naturally. In fact, he did not decide to be a painter until the thrilling aspects of nature inspired him to do so, and it has been a long journey to achieve what you will see at Hedon Museum. Though Christopher studied Fine Art, the talented artist is self-taught with a paintbrush, and claims that the enchanting work you will see before you is still just another step along his journey as an artist.

His method is fascinating as he talks about his interpretation of colour when considering a scene. He paints quickly, weaving the atmosphere into every picture, seeing not just the colour of the objects around him, but the colour of the air between himself and his subjects. Each time of day, each form of weather, each shadow has wonderful colours which are constantly changing.

Christopher has exhibited in the UK and France, and has paintings in private collections in the UK, France, Canada and Hong Kong. Make sure to catch this talented artist on his ever changing journey to perfection.

Exhibition runs Wednesday 11th October – Saturday 24th November. Opening times are every Wednesday and Saturday 10am – 4pm. FREE ADMISSION. Tea, coffee and biscuits are available. Pre-loved and local interest books for sale.
