Ceri House - 2007

by Derek Rothera January 30, 2021

Ceri House - 2007

Early in his career, House focussed primarily on portraiture, looking at how clothing and objects could work in composition alongside the human subject. He was also interested by the technique of fresco painting, making this a new challenge for his palette - to capture a scene in one sitting. The narratives of Ceri's scenes and of the portraiture are vividly painted in expressive smiles, smirks and anger that differs from traditional modes of painting.

The Millinery works had the honour of showing Ceri's works in 2007.  His work is respected by a reputable audience including Sir Peter Blake, who praises Ceri's work as 'fascinating and powerful' .
