Spirit of Manch­ester cap­tured by in­ter­na­tional artist

Macclesfield Express - - MACABRE MACCLESFIELD – PART ONE -

WE are all pas­sion­ate about our birthplace, but per­haps no one is more so than Manch­ester-born artist E An­thony Orme, whose work can be viewed and pur­chased at both his gallery space and his web­site.

Born in the West Gor­ton area of Manch­ester, Orme in­her­ited a love of art from his mother, and has pur­sued his craft with pas­sion, trav­el­ling abroad to paint and pro­duc­ing work with live mod­els in his stu­dio.

The new on­line art gallery means that the fine art and prints can be viewed on­line, and cus­tom-made to suit your re­quire­ments. You can choose from pa­per or can­vas, colour or black and white, and even view how your fin­ished piece will look in a range of the avail­able frames.

E An­thony Orme Gallery are con­sumer and trade sup­pli­ers of the finest qual­ity open edi­tion prints, low num­bered lim­ited edi­tion prints and orig­i­nal paint­ings by E An­thony Orme and Vlasta Orme, who has be­come well recog­nised for her mas­tery of mul­ti­ple medi­ums.

They also pro­vide a range of ad­di­tional ser­vices in­clud­ing pic­ture fram­ing, com­pre­hen­sive fine art scan­ning, and an art/photo print­ing ser­vice. The gallery has a pho­tog­ra­phy stu­dio where pro­fes­sional por­trait pho­tog­ra­phy shoots or pass­port photos take place.

E An­thony Orme talked us through two of his most iconic works from around the city.

An oil on board paint­ing of the Sham­bles - now the site of our Christ­mas mar­kets and newly opened Corn Ex­change - per­fectly cap­tures the area.

Orme said, “I have painted the Sham­bles Manch­ester many times, but this is the first time I have painted it in the snow. This is a won­der­ful old build­ing with ob­vi­ous his­tor­i­cal in­ter­est and I know I will paint it many more times.”

Many of us walk past Sawyer’s Arms on Deans­gate each and ev­ery day, but Orme’s oil paint­ing cap­tures it in an awe-in­spir­ing new way.

“This oil paint­ing of the Sawyers Arms, Deans­gate has more de­tail in it than I in­tended to ren­der orig­i­nally. How­ever once into the paint­ing I re­al­ized that the de­tail “made” the paint­ing work and to lose any of this vi­tal in­for­ma­tion would sell the paint­ing short.

“I hope my idea of light, wet and airy am­biance has worked. You can be the judge.”

Visit the amaz­ing work on dis­play at E. An­thony Orme Gallery, T/A Rome Fine Arts Ltd, 284 Stand Lane, Rad­cliffe, Manch­ester, M26 1JE.
