Lizzie is a landscape painter living in Mousehole, Cornwall. Rooted in a tradition of plein air painting, her work follows the changing patterns of the day, season and weather scape. She strives to capture transitory moments of light, colour, tide and time, and to communicate its beauty and magic on canvas. Her formal background in painting was acquired at Bristol Polytechnic and Falmouth School of Art, and she has exhibited extensively in Cornwall and the West Country.
Painting within the landscape is an utterly absorbing art practice. By working onsite her aim is not to copy, but to find a way of communicating experience. This might be the physical activity of movement, sound, wind or light changes. In some respect she seeks to unlearn what she knows and describe the subject objectively and without prejudice. Preparation is crucial, she preapres a trolley loaded with an easel, pochard box, paints, rags, brushes, canvases, sun, hat, etc. Painting outside brings with it a certain ceremony and protocol. She says she is aware that if she forgets just one item then then the trip has to be abandoned.
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.
