Turner Prize-nominee George Shaw has spent the last two years in a studio residency at the National Gallery, creating some brand new works.

He is best known for his suburban subject matter, and for using Humbrol enamel paint as his medium of choice (the same kind of paint that you use to paint model planes!), but this time he will focusing on the woods -- using his own experiences of walking in the forest near his home.
