Welcome to the portfolio site of painter Julian Sutherland-Beatson.
Julian studied graphic design, printmaking and illustration at the Eastbourne College of Art & design for 4 years in the early 1970s.
He paints the landscape, coastline and urban areas in a style recently described as 'contemporary realism'. Julian has work in a number of private and public collections around the world including The House of Lords.
In 2010 Julian worked on a project entitled Sussex 365 which comprised a series of small paintings of the Sussex countryside, coastline and urban areas which he was then invited to exhibit at Glyndebourne Opera House near Lewes in East Sussex.
He has created paintings during the Glyndebourne Festival for the past eleven years. Julian has also had paintings included in the
Royal Academy Summer exhibition on three occasions.
"The main theme of my work in the recent past has been the marking and celebration of a specific time and place. With my current paintings I aim to mark the changing mood and seasons that I see in the world around me. The work reflects the prevailing seasonal conditions yet is also affected by my emotional mood and my need for say, sun, cold, or just something different. These personal needs inform the work to a large extent and the paintings are a record of a particular point in my own personal timeline".
