“It would seem that in my work I have always emphasised the importance of drawing and draughtsmanship.”

Nick Bremer reflects that his paintings tend to speak for themselves, being largely representational interpretations of landscape and marine themes.

He shows here with his youngest son, Patrick, who is forging a successful, internationally recognised career in Fine Art in Berlin.

Patrick lives in Berlin, where he stocks up on old tattered books and magazines each weekend from the local market to use as his palette. He aims to approach his collages as paintings, using blocks of paper as loaded brush marks and inspired by the impasto mark-making of Freud and Bacon. Each piece begins with a rough plan before taking its own direction, and each is a reaction to the last. For Patrick, collage as a medium encourages the playful use of chance elements, sucking in text, stories and imagery from an array of different sources to create a narrative on the canvas.
