Cardamom & Dill

Damian Le Bas 1963 – 2017

IMG_3107We were heartbroken to learn of the death of the artist Damian Le Bas. Damian was a visionary artist and a brilliant exponent of Art Brut or Gypsy DaDa (a term he coined). He was also a man with an amazing sense of humour and a warm, generous soul and we feel immensely privileged to have worked with him on our Black Butterflies exhibition (2013) and Grace In Thy Sight residency (2014). Our thoughts and sympathies go to his wife Delaine and son Damian James.

One thought on “School House Gallery”

  1. Such a relaxing place. A pot of Earl Grey, a piece of home-made cake, some interesting art works and Dave Brubeck in the background – I’ll definitely return!
