Brian Sinfield Art Gallery
Anne-Marie's inspiration comes from the things she loves. She has recently become fascinated with flowers growing freely in the countryside and also in more formal gardens. In this series of paintings she manages to capture the beauty of the subject with great originality creating striking yet peaceful work. The impact of her paintings, especially these more recent flower paintings, is impossible to ignore.
Anne-Marie Butlin trained at Harrow and Loughborough College of Art. Her palette is subtle and her tones close, giving the paintings a feeling of quite and calm. She has shown in numerous group exhibitions including those at The Royal Society of Portrait Painters, The Royal Academy, The Royal Watercolour Society, The Royal Society of British Artists and The Royal College of Art amongst many others.

NEW WORKS BY WILLIAM BALTHAZAR ROSE.
How does one describe the work of William Balthazar Rose? Enigmatic, surreal, disturbing, amusing, inspiring. Add mystery. Add remarkable creative power. Add richness of paint and we're getting somewhere.
There is something darkly medieval and dreamlike in his paintings. Many draw inspiration from the past, particularly from Italian culture. There are inevitably shades of other artists in his work - Picasso, Balthus, Morandi, Cezanne, Titian which he encompasses in his compositions in his own unique way.
Of particulare note are his celebrated chef paintings. He says of these: "One of my greatest interested has been the creation of a personal narrative. This has led to the development of a series of paintings know broady as 'the cooks'. These paintings are humourous and at times terrifying. I introduce the cook as the universal tragic hero and demagogue though he is oftern all too brutally human". The narrative power if these paintings, in particular, the very large ones, is overwhelming.
William Rose was born in Cambridge into a family of intellectuals and artists. He lived in Sansepolcro, Tuscany for several years in the home town of Piero della Francesca and exhibited widely in Italy. He was educated in America where he recieved his Masters from Princeton University. He later taught at both Princeton and the University of California and practised architecture at leading firms on both coasts. He currently lives with his family in Italy.
