An intimate exhibition of oil paintings and sketches celebrating The Waste Land by T.S. Eliot in the comfortable surroundings of Margate’s Proper Coffee House. All works for sale.
Award-winning Margate artist Anthony Giles paints large and powerful paintings using the methods of the Old Masters, with glazes and beeswax impasto. For this exhibition Anthony has expanded upon his usual techniques, drawing influence from T.S. Eliot’s poem The Waste Land with an eclectic mix of original works in oil and acrylic to emphasise the gritty essence of this important poem.
This is an independent event organised by members of the public in response to Turner Contemporary's invitation to create an event or activity inspired by The Waste Land, T.S. Eliot's legacy, and Turner Contemporary's exhibition Journeys with 'The Waste Land'.
