On Lived-in Landscapes from Cornwall in Bath, Easter 2010

What’s been so good about this Bath showing of Lived-in Landscapes is that transplanting these images out of their usual Cornish context has highlighted their underlying content for me; in other words that they’re not just about living in Cornwall but about the broader issue of how people interact with landscape.

The Chapel Row Gallery has been an excellent venue to bring out this aspect. It’s ambience is reminiscent of that ocean light that was the theme of my previous show in Falmouth. As such it’s been sympathetic to the Cornishness of these new pictures while enabling them to “breathe” and so communicate something of the influence of that human presence that is their real theme.

A big thankyou to Gabrielle Hawkes who helped bring out this underlying theme in her introduction to the catalogue that you can read by clicking here.

  1. Your pieces are very tranquil and welcoming. Instead of going on a holiday, I can escape in one of your paintings. I looked at the virtual tour at the Chapel Row Gallery, and was amazed at how well the gallery exhibited your works and the natural lighting that comes into the front room. Great job!
