Roger Lockey

Now that I am a little more established as a resident of Wareham, I have been able to investigate the local area in greater depth and my more recent work reflects this exploration. I have tended to work in thematic series based on specific sites, such as the RSPB reserve at Arne, or by collecting objects and creating still life compositions.

I am still fascinated by experimenting with a variety of media, often in combinations and I usually work on the backgrounds first, creating layered effects with materials such as watercolour, acrylic inks, emulsion paint, oil pastels and gesso. These are usually treated with other agents to alter the surface texture, including rags, tissue paper, bleach, soap, cling film and glue.

I am also a member of Purbeck Art Weeks, and have exhibited at Rollington Barn, the Etches Collection, Holme for Gardens, Domus Estate Agents, as well as sharing an Open Studio in May/June 2018 with the sculptor Moira Purver in Langton Matravers.

A larger selection of my work can be seen on my website at www.galleryrjl.com, including printmaking, photographs, relief sculptures and painted shoes!
