The presence and absence of light is the most fundamental concept behind all my paintings. Although often diffused or obscured, it permeates even the heaviest of skies, giving hope and acting as an uplifting counterpoint to dark, mysterious seas.
Seascapes usually change quickly; shifting clouds cause differing reflections and refractions of light, immediately transforming a myriad of shades and colours. These changes induce a constantly evolving emotional response to the subject, allowing it to be explored again and again. The application and removal of many layers of paint provides depth, until a balanced and coherent image emerges.
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 email@example.com 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.
