I have lived in Cornwall most of my life and exposure to such a dramatic environment has inspired me to paint.
The landmass of West Penwith is small but encompasses such geographic diversity from the turquoise seas of Lamorna on the South Coast to the wild rocky outcrops and crashing waves of the North Coast, and the great stretches of moorland in between.
I work with a knife as I as I want to express as forcefully as I can the forces of nature, the ever- changing elements, cloud formations, piercing blue skies over acres of red bracken, the raw beauty of the landscape. The natural progression towards paintings on a greater scale is leading to an exploration of larger landscapes further afield.
TO SUBMIT WORK TO THE SUMMERHOUSE GALLERY
Here at The Summerhouse we love to support both established and new, up and coming artists with an affinity to Cornwall. We do recieve a very large volume of submissions, and although we take care to view every artists work, it is very difficult to discuss work with every single artist who gets in touch.
Please send us a selection of work which you feel best represents you, along with an artists statement and a list of other galleries which represent your work if applicable. You can email this to firstname.lastname@example.org or post to our address, with contact details (email or telephone) which we can reach you via should your application be successful.
We look forward to hearing from you.
Tuesday - Friday: 10.30-5.30
