The exhibition that has just opened (it finishes at the end of this week) is Josephine Trotter’s twenty-first. ‘She is an artist who has a powerful feeling for the material she uses: oil paint, in all its glorious physicality. She says “I get so excited about paint, its quality and application. Also, I feel privileged to have trained at a time when drawing was the crux and bones of art education and very hard work. The thing is, I really love painting.” That is abundantly evident from her exuberant work’ (Martin Gayford). This is the absolutely beautiful Cabbages.
