Phil Chitty: Scratching the surface

Exhibition ran from 17 Sep 2019 – 29 Sep 2019
Open evening: 20 Sep, 6.30 - 8.30pm 

Phil Chitty’s paintings owe much to years of walking the Weald of Western Kent. Their structure references the land, its geometry and accrued history where boundaries, field enclosures, tracks and burial sites are just visible beneath the surface.

There are parallels with the process of painting in oils – compositions are created, layer by layer, so the final work reveals, by chance or choice, hints of earlier incarnations.
