My paintings feature in group exhibition – Land-Sea-Air – A celebration of nature’s abundance: This show is packed with local & national art and craft delights that acknowledge the Earth’s remarkable recovery during lockdown
“The works I have selected for this exhibition were conceived whilst visiting estuaries and lakes where flora is found in abundance. I am interested in observing evidence of natural erosion and the survival of plant life at the coastline, river’s edge or lake side. The interface between water and land is subject to constant change and is perhaps one of the most dynamic places of all. Where prevailing weather systems and tides wreak havoc with the fragile ecosystems that exist there, we can observe life and death precipitated by wave action, drought and flood. Washed up or eroded forms transported by the force of nature abound, and when discovered, allow us to contemplate a sense of loss and gain through their own journeys” Fay Collins
My new body of Lakeland landscape work will feature in the ‘Chambers’ gallery upstairs. Most of the pieces have been produced during the unprecedented circumstances of lockdown; a visual journey of recalled experiences moving through landscapes local to Ambleside and beyond. Feelings of entrapment at home predominate; unable to explore the fells and a longing to be witness to the wild, unpopulated paths and vistas of our beloved Lake District. More details to follow..
