Mon–Fri 10–6, Sat 10–5 & by appt t 020 7937 3518 Painter, photographer, art critic and administrator, all undertaken at the highest levels of passionate engagement and professionalism, Derek Balmer has packed a lot into his 65year career. Trained in Bristol, he was a key figure in a vibrant Bristol art scene in the 1960s, and though photography (at the Bristol Old Vic) may have then earned him a living, he never stopped painting and exhibiting. With a style influenced initially by Graham Sutherland and latterly by Bonnard, Lanyon, Hoyland and the Abstract Expressionists, he has steadily forged these diverse influences into a richly expressive, colouristic way of working, quite intensely personal in character. With its exuberant evocations of Italy and Spain, the exhibition at The Catto Gallery shows him as daring and inquisitive as ever. NU THUMB nail Derek Balmer ‘Hotel Garden’
