A major exhibition of paintings recording the results of Lincoln Seligman’s travels, entitled ‘An Artist at Large’ will open at La Galleria Pall Mall, London SW1Y 4UY from Monday 3 – Saturday 8 December 2012. The show will feature around 60 paintings with prices ranging from £1,000-£20,000.
For the past three years artist and sculptor Lincoln Seligman has criss-crossed the globe, covering more than 200,000 miles over four continents. Armed with sketch pad, brushes and camera, he has captured remarkable images from Tuscan hill villages to Indian palaces and from the shores of Africa to the plains of the American west
A British artist, born in 1950, Lincoln Seligman has gained an international reputation for his large-scale sculptures and murals, which can be found in many landmark buildings worldwide. When not creating abstract sculptures he concentrates full time on painting. His visual travelogue depicts images from Provence, Brittany and Tuscany, Northern India and Sri Lanka, Bhutan, Kenya, New York and New England, parts of China as well as the Cotswold countryside. When not travelling, Lincoln divides his time between studios in the Cotswolds and London.
Lincoln’s work, which is noted for its use of vibrant colour, is varied, ranging from large-scale canvases of landscapes, a series of what he calls 'winescapes' – in which he uses bottles and wine cases to create quasi-abstract compositions - to peaceful images of monks at the Abbey of Sant’Antimo monastery near Paganico.
Lincoln Seligman has exhibited in London (a one-man show at the Royal Academy in 2007) and New York and his paintings can be found in many important public collections including the New York Public Library, the European Parliament, the Royal Palace, Riyadh, Standard Chartered Bank, Flemings, Chanel and Laurent Perrier. Two important recent commissions include a gigantic hanging sculpture in Phoenix City, Beijing, for the Chinese government in 2011, and set designs for the New English Ballet Theatre’s Bright Young Things at Sadler’s Wells in July this year. Lincoln also holds annual painting courses in Sri Lanka and Kenya.
Lincoln Seligman’s show, ‘An Artist at Large’ is presented by Penrose Fine Art.
