Peter Durling "Stem" Abstract Oil Painting Framed

£165.00

Product description

Peter Durling "Stem" Abstract Oil Painting on canvas board, painted Sept 1998. Subject is an abstract of various leaves and stems in vibrant greens and blues, ...possibly as seen though a martini glass with pimento olives? Initialed on the back of board PD. Also dates painted written on back "12-26 Sept '98". There are several stickers with various writing including pricing at £450, then later £325. Excellent condition. Painting is 24" x 20". Unfinished wood frame is 29" x 25".

Peter Durling (1922 – 2008) trained as an Architect
and at the Chelsea School of Art under Willi Soukop,
the sculptor. He worked in architectural practices in
Bath, Dorchester, Reigate and London, as well as
overseas, in Lebanon. He held one-man shows of his
paintings in Bath, Cambridge and Southwark
Cathedral.

Three completely different styles of painting are encompassed
by Peter’s work. These relate to different
facets of his character. His elegant and beautiful line
drawings show his skill as a draughtsman. Flamboyant,
colourful abstracts reflect good times in his life,
while at the opposite end of the spectrum, his spiritual
and religious works indicate periods of introspectiveness
and suffering.

As a gifted architect, he was responsible for the design
of many public and private projects, such as St
Mary’s Roman Catholic Church at Alton in East Hampshire.
On returning incognito to the church 30 years
after it was built, he was informed by a lady parishioner,
who was cleaning the sanctuary there, that it
was their “little bit of heaven”. This acknowledgment
of his work affected Peter deeply.
