Matthew is One of Six Children...

On Friday night I met up with a friend at the preview for an exhibition of two painters - Alec Cumming and Matthew Lanyon at the Art 18/21 gallery in Norwich.

I love the paintings of Peter Lanyon - and saw the show at the Castle Museum a few years ago which had one of his last paintings...he died in a gliding accident aged only forty-six.
Matthew is one of his six children.  Read about him and see more of his Cornishly inspired work here

Alec Cumming is a young artist who works in a mid-twentieth century tradition too really.

Alec Cumming

His paintings are like abstracted still lives for me. 
They could be a blend of Patrick Heron and William Scott's paintings
It's great to see a former City College student doing so
