Bob Aldous returns to One Paved Court with  a solo show of new work. Bob’s paintings – usually executed on silk – use a delicate layering of watercolour, acrylic and ink, to become visual meditations that relate to the interplay between movement and repose. 

Bob’s works are not drawn from direct observation but are worked in the studio, often from smaller studies that are abstracted and then developed into larger works. By working in this way the abstract paintings relate to the artist’s emotion and memory; a memory that is shared through a visual poetic dialogue with the viewer. 

Bob Aldous has had a lifelong fascination with the movement of water, and how light reflects and filters through water’s surface.  The movement of water has been arrested and transfixed into a single moment, but as we are drawn into the painting the energy of movement becomes alive. These paintings are both dynamic and peaceful.
