Painter Patrick Palmer has completed five new works ahead of two forthcoming exhibitions. In July, he take part in People and Places at Gallery-of-the-Wall in Cardiff, Wales (July 4 to August 10, 2010). Next, he’ll show at Runneymead Gallery from August 4 to September 6, 2010.

The new work follows Palmer’s interest in the human form, balancing realism with a distinct element of draughtsmanship. Palmer studied in both London and Dublin. He also draws influence from Francis Bacon.
