We are very proud to be welcoming Leigh to Oberon Gallery for the opportunity to showcase his fabulous collection of Limited Edition pieces along with some Original's fresh from the 'Lambert' studio .
Leigh was born and raised in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, where he resided for the first twenty years of his life.
It was on leaving Newcastle that he began to appreciate the nature of his upbringing; what he had once seen as a concrete jungle now seeming strangely beautiful. Taking inspiration from his childhood, Lambert's pieces have a strong sense of nostalgia, evoking fond memories of a youth that many can relate to.
Lambert is an accomplished artist across a range of media, most commonly working in oils on board. His use of colour is minimal, optimistically applying splashes only to the figures that play amidst the otherwise monochromatic landscapes, capturing the joy and vitality of youth.
Gary McNamara has been a successful illustrator for the past 30 years. From the age of 23, Gary has worked freelance as a commercial illustrator for many of the biggest publishing houses in the world, focusing mostly on extremely well-known childrens characters.
In more recent years Gary has been able to concentrate more on his figurative painting, investigating and exploring various mediums to create depth and movement in his work. His latest acrylic and mixed media works demonstrate his idea to bring the beauty of nature together with more figurative work.
Garys paintings translate beautifully into Limited Edition prints, the 3D elements add to the depth created by Gary in the original pieces and the high gloss resin finish brings the whole piece to life, just as Gary intended.
David was born in Derby in 1946 and comes from a long family line of marine artists.
He is very much a man of the sea, having served in both the Royal Navy and the Royal Marines. During tours he would often entertain the troops by sketching comical figures and cartoons and this is where his love for art developed. He was inspired by far flung places that his nomadic naval career took him to.
Davids love and knowledge of the sea is readily apparent in his work; there is a strong sense of its power and dynamic nature in his paintings. The subjects hark back to a wonderful golden era of sail and yet remain contemporary and relevant. Many of his paintings have a strong narrative sense and the style and quality is a reminder of the truely great marine artists of a long passed era. Part of the enjoyment of his paintings is that they truly grip the senses and transport one to another time and place.
Davids work is widely collected and can be found in both private and corporate collections throughout the world.
