This week we had a surprise visit from Marc Marot, who collaborated with artist Scarlett Raven to create the groundbreaking augmented reality exhibition The Danger Tree: The Great War Re-imagined. We heard first hand about the impact of the show and how by digitally stripping away the countless layers of paint, viewers are able to reveal the creative journey beneath and see the Great War re-imagined.
VISIT THIS WEEKEND and see for yourself. Immerse yourself in the poignant World War One commemoration by viewing each imaged through the free augmented reality app Blippar.
Using Blippar, viewers can unlock Scarlett’s poignant work, stripping away countless layers of paint to reveal the creative journey beneath. The project challenges us to explore alternative versions of the artworks, seen through the words of the poets and movingly expressed by leading British actors including Sean Bean and Christopher Eccleston.
Coinciding with the 100-year anniversary of the end of The Battle of the Somme, the innovative project sees Scarlett and record executive Marc Marot join forces to create a series of haunting paintings which reveal the true heartbreak of war. The collection takes its name from the only tree left standing on the battlefield during fighting, and is inspired by the legendary war poets Wilfred Owen, Siegfried Sassoon and Rupert Brooke.
The limited edition collection:
In conjunction with The Danger Tree, a striking series of signed limited edition works is now available. Presented as both giclée on paper and hand-embellished canvas editions, these pieces are beautifully framed to showcase the level of detail and breathe new life into commemorations for the centenary of the Battle of the Somme.

Westover Gallery are thrilled to announce Paul Kenton will be in the gallery on Saturday 24th June between 1pm and 4pm. An exclusive signed limited edition on metal entitled ‘Bournemouth Blaze’ will be available to view purchase at the artist show. Depicting Bournemouth Pier in Pauls striking style. Call the gallery on 01202 297682 for your invitation and further information on the event.

Cityscape artist Paul Kenton returns to the art scene with a new collection that demonstrates both a shift in his style and medium of choice. Metallique swaps traditional canvas for modern metal and reveals the latest in Kenton’s artistic evolution.

Paul has become renowned for his striking cityscapes, which are inspired by fast-paced city-living across the world. Indeed, the artist expertly captures the movement in a city that is captured by the blurred colour and captivating light.

Metallique was born when a canvas didn’t fit onto an easel that Kenton had built, so he reached for leftover sheet aluminium and began applying oil paint to that instead. Delighted with the result and the way the oils took to the metal, he began to refine his brushstrokes and reviewed the tools he was using to discover how this new medium could be adapted to his style of work.

Kenton strives for his paintings to create a mood, evoke a feeling or reflect a myriad of emotions; with free shapes, mixed media, dripped lines and colour. With Metallique he has taken this up a notch by allowing the metal to show through the layers of paint, the overall composition takes on a new dimension which gives a greater sense of depth and life to the scene. Viewed from different angles, the works reflect light sources in the same way one might see sunlight bounce off the cosmopolitan subject matters Kenton favours.


Kenton, who remains one of Washington Green Fine Art’s top selling artists after nearly a decade after joining the company, said:

“My cityscapes reflect the many moods of manmade landscapes; I find it exhilarating to express furious movement, artificial lights and the vibrancy of a busy city centre at night as well as the subtler moods of a misty dawn at the same venue.

“I love to capture the mood and spirit of a scene, adding layers of depth and expression which just can’t be captured in a straight pictorial study.

“My work is heavily inspired by the different times of the day and the effects these throw across the cities. I am fascinated by natural light and the way it interacts with the buildings.”

Pauls painting style has evolved into a free flowing fusion of various media, choosing not to stick to the constraints of any one medium, simply picking what he feels would communicate the ideas he has for a piece best.

Paul’s paintings have continued to evolve and Paul has become one of Britain’s most successful and sought after artists. Paul is currently exhibiting throughout the UK in over thirty prestigious galleries, and has followers and collectors all over the world. In 2012 he was commissioned to paint three large pieces for the 2012 London Olympic games, the paintings were to capture the mood and excitement of London and the Olympic park during the games, and were hung in the Olympic park for the games. Paul was one of the contributing artists for ‘The Big Egg Hunt 2012’ which was one of the largest and most interactive public art displays London has ever seen.
