Andrew Jowett in Symphony Hall Birmingham

Watercolour 70 x 52 cm, Norman Perryman, 2016.

 
 

During the last twenty-eight years Andrew Jowett and Symphony Hall Birmingham became inseparable. I've portrayed Andrew standing with disarming modesty, proud yet relaxed, as he warmly welcomes us into his second home. His gaze betrays the understanding and wisdom of his long experience as Director. I see him as a pillar of strength amidst the music that swirls around him in the renowned acoustics and beautiful colours of "his" concert hall. It's also a compliment to an imaginative and dynamic entrepreneur, still full of ideas, even as he retires. This painting is not merely a portrait. My free watercolour style is to suggest the man in his setting and the background is a reference to my painting The Mahler Experience - perhaps the most popular of all the paintings he commissioned me to paint for the Symphony Hall Collection.
