FELIX SEFTON DELMER Blue art exhibition  at North House Gallery Manningtree, Essex


We are sorry to advise that we have taken the decision to temporarily close the gallery to the public.

We hope to be able to re-open in June.

Please contact us with any enquiries.



The reds, oranges, yellows, pinks, purples and grey of Felix's first show PAINT have been replaced by new paintings, all playing with different blues, including the newest ones, impressively dark in Prussian blue over graphite. A selection from the previous show have migrated to the print room so can still be seen.


Cobalt, Ultramarine, Prussian, Cerulean, Antwerp, Indigo, Manganese, Phtalo, and Oriental, are some of the blue pigments available to painters. Each pigment has its own unique properties and qualities. I have no preference for one colour over another. I think of colours as how the keys on a piano must be for a musician. These paintings are my blue notes. The constant fluctuation and quality of light acting on pigment alters the colour perception of the human eye. The density of pigment in the medium, the method of application and the effect of light over time, are the factors that constitute the essence of these paintings.

Exhibition dates

Open on Saturdays, 10 am - 5 pm or by appointment.
