I was invited to participate in the annual summer show in the Château in Lacapelle-Marival this year. I sent in a few drawings, and attended the opening this evening, not expecting terribly much.
The standard of work this year however is very high. One painter who blew me away is former graphic designer Jörg Hermle, a Berliner who has a house in the Lot. I was immediately drawn to his work with it's strong design and colour. The imagery is playful yet very powerful and disturbing. Not only am I planning to go back, I am even considering buying one of his watercolour and gouache paintings.
