The exhibition Martyn Brewster: The Nocturnes at TheGallery, AUB is a selection of recent works including paintings and drawings by the long-time associate Martyn Brewster. The Arts University Bournemouth exhibited with Martyn when TheGallery first opened its doors in 1998, and has since held a selection of his work as part of the AUB collection.

For the last thirty years, Martyn has lived near the cliffs, open skies and beaches of Southbourne, Dorset. Inspired by natural landscape, the sea and the light, his images are based on abstract or landscape themes.

Whilst always being involved with painting and the use of strong rich colours, his most recent work introduces a more restrained palette into his evocative abstract paintings. Martyn’s vigorous poetic response to his natural surroundings is expressed in the vitality of the work, and the quieter approach heralds paintings of a fresh contemplative power and strength.
