A Sense of Place – to 28 Sept

Comparative landscapes following my 50yr retrospective in Oriel Mon

Landscape painting proper goes well beyond a nice view or a pretty picture to an expression of the relationship between man and nature. Painting in plain air as in the Taoist approach is fast and immediate, capturing something that can’t be put into words; alternatively, when the joy and wonder is lost all that is left is technique and prosaic detail

It is ironic that landscape painting is regarded as a lesser art form, in art history from Leonardo to the impressionists the brush with nature has been pivotal and instrumental to the development of artistic expression as we know it and today is more important than ever in a world of materialism and rampart ecological destruction
