Roger Gardner

I am interested in the surfaces of things – wood, marble, plaster, metal - amongst others.

I paint in oil on canvas often using elements [an oval, mesh, woodgraining, denim, wallpaper] creating a composite which holds the painting together.

I am also involved in painting landscapes and domestic items [chairs] in oil; and shirts in mixed media.

The paintings of Stuart Davis, Piero della Francesca, Matisse and Jasper Johns; the writings of Huraki Murakami, Basho; and the plays of Shakespeare all provide inspiration for the work.
