I have been featured as one of "four artists of Oundle" in the Oundle Chronicle (page 12, issue 48). The Chronicle is created by pupils of Oundle School, you can view the edition here. (opens in a new window)
And here's my "profile" :-
"Crispin Heesom grew up in Oundle, and was influenced by his mother,
who was a painter. She encouraged Crispin’s ambitions to go to art school to study painting. He studied painting in Norwich and lived in London for many years before moving back to Northamptonshire more than 20 years ago. He describes his style as expressionist and uses what he calls a spontaneous palette of vibrant colours in his work. He has also done many etchings and in complete contrast to his vibrant paintings, these are boldly black and white. His subject matter is mostly of Kings Cliffe, where he has developed a particular fascination for its small village lanes. His studio is in Kings Cliffe, where he uses a local framer. He says that Kings Cliffe is a vibrant bohemian village, perfect for practising art. His last exhibition was at Lyme Regis. At 68 years of age, he says there is still a lot to be done, with many commissions lined up and subjects on his mind that he wants to take on."
I will be exhibiting at the Lyme Regis Arts Fest open exhibition at the Town Mill Arts Centre, Lyme Regis. I am currently working on a collection of paintings inspired by my visits to Lyme Regis.
The exhibition runs from the 30th September to the 8th October and is open daily, 10.30-4.30, free admission. It is a large and varied exhibition with works in many mediums.
Peterborough, June 2017
My next exhibition will be at the City Gallery, Peterborough Museum. Running from the 1st to the 18th of June. Titled "Towards a different landscape", the wide range of paintings sit on the borderline of figuration and abstraction.
City Art Gallery at Peterborough Museum is at Priestgate, Peterborough, PE1 1LF
