Malcolm Liepke, Alberto Zamboni and Henrietta Labouchere at Albemarle Gallery

Malcolm Liepke: New Works MAY 3-26
Liepke’s masterful use and knowledge of his chosen medium, is the culmination of a long and ongoing apprenticeship, studying aspects of painters he holds in high esteem. Compositional and tonal nods to the likes of Singer Sargent, Whistler and Degas, the patterns and textures of Vuillard and an ever- evolving palette of vibrant colours, result in a combination, which defines Liepke’s unique identity as a contemporary painter.
Alberto Zamboni | Controluce
MAY 3-26
Alberto Zamboni was born in 1971 in Bologna, where he continues to live and work today. Born into a respected family of artists, his creative inheritance was further nurtured by the vibrant artistic environment of his home city – the birthplace of Annibale, Agostino Carracci and Giorgio Morandi.

As well as the countless artists who have lived and worked in Bologna over the centuries, Zamboni’s work is buoyed by references to history’s most innovative practitioners. The skilful juxtaposition of light and shadow in Zamboni’s creations is reminiscent of Whistler’s hazy views of the river Thames and the nocturnal seascapes of Turner. Yet literature also plays a pivotal role in Zamboni’s creative process – especially authors such as Edgar Allan Poe, Herman Melville and George Simenon. Zamboni is fascinated by tales of adventure and the great unknown, and strives to capture this sense of odyssey within his misty landscapes.


Henrietta Labouchere | Recent Paintings
MAY 3-26
Henrietta Labouchere was born in Field Dalling, North Norfolk in 1984. She graduated with a BA in Fine Art (Painting) from Chelsea College of Art and currently lives and works in Norfolk.

Since her days at college, Labouchere has been interested in paint – the way it handles and flows on the panel. Her figures are boldly sketched, the sum of several layers of colour, each painstakingly applied. Her compositions are built up slowly, with nascent ideas and early missteps absorbed into the final panel; a key part of the historical evolution of the painting.
