At the West Barn, Bradford-on-Avon,
an exhibition of decorative panels
on a theme of the

Tree of Life
by
Jim Robins

23, 24, 25 September 2011

Inspired by 18C country house wall
paintings, harking back to deeply traditional
Norse imagery influenced by incoming
French and German ideas.
The style, which echoes the formalized
patterns of contemporary needlework,
is probably best described as
'Vernacular Gustavian'.

They're painted with acrylics on
plywood or tongue and groove panels,
recycled wherever possible,
distressed to bring up the grain of the wood
and make 'em look like they were always there....

In the group shot above the large panel with
yellow border is about 90 cm. square,
the horizontal one at the top is 120 cm. long.
For the time being I'm selling at effectively cost price,
as a guide,the largest (over a metre square) £400,
large (up to a metre) £300,
medium (A3 to half metre) £200,
small (A4 to foolscap) £100
I'm happy to accept bespoke commissions,
just give me an indication of size and your
preferred colour palette -
also doors, cupboards etc. on site,
walls even......
