The first fully painted feature length animation ‘Loving Vincent’ is set to be released in under a week (October 13th 2017) and we can’t wait to see gallery artist Sarah Wimperis’s scene she painted for the film (see images above). The Film documents the life and death of Vincent Van Gogh with the films animation in the style of his famous works of art. Amazingly the film is constructed of 65,000 oil paintings. Sarah spent five painstaking months working on the film in Gdansk at the beginning of 2017 and was the only British artist involved in the making of the film.

To coincide with the release of the film Sarah is having a solo exhibition ‘Light and Heat’ in our London gallery which starts on the 12th October 2017, where we will also be hosting a private view with Sarah in attendance. The works that will be featured in this exhibition are inspired by her experience working on ‘Loving Vincent’. To produce these new paintings Sarah spent her summer immersing herself in the colours and light of the South of France, where Van Gogh once lived and worked.
