Christo Sharpe has always loved gardens especially when they’re considered the best. ‘Garden with Oast Houses’ uses Great Dixter as the basis for a colour study against form. The best gardens use this technique and so, I believe, do the best paintings. I have again enjoyed emphasising the play of texture against strong colour in this painting.

Clear, bold and confident, Christo Sharpe is a lifelong painter who closes in on a subject to pull your attention to the colours, shapes and details in front of him. His strong colours and compositions are delightfully simple and appealing. He is a lifelong painter who after Southampton College of Art and a 20 year career as an art director in advertising is now focussing exclusively on his art. He is an enthusiastic traveller and walker and it is often on these rambles that his subjects reveal themselves. It is not always the classic views that appeal, it can just as often be a gnarled tree trunk, a dense woodland scene or a well shaped country garden that holds his attention. If he can take the subject in front of him and encourage the viewer to see something new and exciting in that image, then he has achieved what he wants in his art. To generate an awareness that might otherwise be missing. This is work that looks and feels fresh.
