Castle Acre Priory shadows (2005) Watercolour 24" x 16.5" by Gerard Stamp

The following is adapted from the introduction to the catalogue for the 2006 solo exhibition, written by Dan Cruickshank:

The great thing is that Stamp’s watercolours give you the eye to see familiar things in an exciting, inspiring, new and strangely unfamiliar way. They are haunting, challenging and reveal the beauty around us that we so often take for granted, are blind to. They make you think and yearn. They make you want to rush out and look at buildings. What more could any artist do?
