Still Life Paintings & Commissions is a culmination of fortyfivedownstairs’ second Artist in Residency, that ran from 4 February 2014.
Christopher Beaumont has spent nearly four months creating new still life paintings as Artist in Residence at fortyfivedownstairs, which will be exhibited alongside a set of commissioned paintings that have not yet been shown in public. The commissioned works usually leave the artist’s studio without any kind of public showing, to be hung in the privacy of the client’s home or office. These works vary greatly in scale, subject and ambition. This brief exhibition in Flinders Lane is a chance to reunite the works and parties involved, and to catch up with Christopher’s recent new direction.
