Festoon lights on Brighton Beach

Oil on Board


Looking out to sea from Brighton Beach's eponymous Fishing Quarter. A string of festoon lights, cafe chairs and fisherman's huts are intensified by a rich, powerful palette, capturing the day's fading heat, and set against a contrasting vivid blue coastal backdrop.

All of Kathryn Matthew's paintings are framed in a bespoke, hand finished white wooden frame. Please allow approx 10cm each side to the 80x80cm board size.

Kathryn Matthews studied Visual Art at the De Montfort University in Leicester (1990-93). She has exhibited widely throughout the UK and internationally with shows in New York, Dubai and Paris. The artist is best known for her fresh perspectives of British coastal scenes and her vibrant colour palette inspired by her extensive travels. The stripping and re-application of layers and glazes and bold textural mark making gives the work a luminous and often ethereal quality.
