A few years ago I came across the wonderful work of Hamish Blakely whose paintings were on display at the Castle Gallery in Exeter. The gallery had to move to new premises after a fire at a nearby hotel in 2016. In this 10 minute video Hamish explains how he developed the concept for his Out of Work Angels. He employs contemporary realism to tackle the subject of angels who are no longer in demand in our western society since religion has been pushed aside in favour of commerce, our new god.
Art collectors will love his beautiful fine art paintings created with great skill from his fantastic imagination.
