Geoffrey Olsen was one of the most original painters to come from the Welsh valleys.

His paintings are characterized by a bold, free-flowing use of oil paint in layers, and his work builds on the natural forms of his native post-industrial Merthyr Tydfil, on the Cotswolds escarpments of his home in England, and on the light and environment of Miami, where he lived for several years.

Olsen's paintings excavate our past and re-present the world, which we have marked.
