Memories & Reflections by renowned British Contemporary Painter, Hugo Grenville.

Grenville's paintings are interior landscapes with a contemplative figure reading or dreaming in the foreground, sometimes the interplay of a figure and its reflection in a mirror, both giving the viewer a focal point and leading the eye into the background beyond, hinting at the artist's belief that we are all defined by the spaces we inhabit.

Grenville's work is informed by centuries of art history, from Botticelli's idealisation of beauty and Bonnard/Matisse's use of color and pattern, to Patrick Heron's love of textile or Pollock's celebration of the medium of oil paint. Grenville transcends all of these to find an artistic expression that is entirely his own – canvases that capture the exuberance and timelessness of a romantic English vision.
