John Virtue: The Sea

Exhibition of renowned painter John Virtue's latest seascapes at the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts.

Virtue moved to live on the North Norfolk Coast in 2009 and, since that time, has been making a spectacular new body of work.

These canvases are vast in scale and powerful in the drama of their presence, the black and white paint freely applied to the raw canvas surface with brushes, hands and rags.
