Roger is well-regarded for his colourful canvas paintings. Recent paintings focus on the landscapes of Norfolk.

Saturday 19 September 2015: Roger Gamble – Acrylics and Ideas

Roger is well-known for his vibrantly painted and often humorous paintings, but in recent times his work has become more minimalist and abstract. Recent paintings focus on the Breckland landscape.

For most of my artistic life I have been a figurative painter, much preoccupied with images of people in commonplace situations, with little ironies and paradoxes. Much of my interest nowadays involves the possibilities offered by the strong horizontals and wide spaces of Breckland, the Fens, and the coastlines of Norfolk.

Roger Gamble : An Affection for Acrylics


Roger says: I am mostly drawn to images of people. People in commonplace, even mundane, situations; frequently urban and perhaps with an added element, such as an unorthodox viewpoint or a touch of irony.


Roger will be painting in the demonstration area of the Artworks exhibition today, sharing his enthusiasm for painting in acrylics, from 10.15 am – 4.30 pm. Read more about Roger Gamble‘s work.
