We are delighted to be hosting an exhibition by Robert Eadie here at The Valdoe Studios. The collection titled ‘Spirit of Place’ will be on display to the public from Sunday 8th to Saturday 14th of March between 10am and 7pm.
Robert Eadie studied at Plymouth College of Art, Brighton College of Art and the Byam Shaw School of Art in Kensington where he obtained a degree in drawing and painting in 1985.
A childhood spent on the South Downs led to a deep interest in natural history and also a desire to paint the landscape which has lasted a life-time. Dissatisfied with merely representing specific locations in his work, Robert works from his memory and imagination – using an energetic painting technique – to create striking contemporary paintings which express a unique and personal response to nature.
“I see my work as an attempt to fix feelings in paint, so that each painting becomes a permanent record of my response to the natural world”
Roberts awards include the Bateson Mason Drawing prize for life drawing and has work hanging in the Manhatton ballet school.
