The Kick-About #59 ‘Augustus Osbourne Lamplough’

Lots of summer light for this week’s Kick-About.

Red's Kingdom

Our last Kick-About together was fired off by the super-saturated decor of Henri Matisse’s 1908 painting, Harmony in Red, also known as The Dessert. As Vanessa Clegg observes, there is but a small difference between the word ‘dessert’ and ‘desert’, but a whole world of difference between Matisse’s spatial effects and use of colour and those distinguishing the paintings of Augustus Osbourne Lamplough. With Lamplough’s evocations of exotic landscapes as our muse this week, enjoy this latest collection of new works made in a short time.

Jordan Buckner

“The magic of Lamplough’s work is all in the soft, low contrast haze. He managed to capture those dusty, golden hour landscapes with a gentleness and calmness – a painting that feels barely there. My own contribution isn’t quite as calm – perhaps a little more sickly, but an exploration at least of the similar, low contrast magic landscape.”

    I smiled at the comment you gave Dan on Thurs. Doors, and that’s why I came here. Wow, Matisse’s painting shows he spent a lot of time with this. He certainly mastered the fog, or haze. Thank you for showing this. Seeing paintings make me happy:)
