“Land Meets Sea” exhibition at the blue tree gallery in York.

Opening on Saturday 18th March to 6th May 2017.

This exhibition brings together 4 painters and 1 ceramic artist on the theme of the land and sea with their connection in the coastline and towns and how these artists see the subject in their own visual language.

Paintings by Rosemary Abrahams an East Yorkshire based painter. Her Seascape paintings are expressed in two ways, that of the turbulent sea in high winds and then the freshness of the morning when the beach is untouched by humanity. Surface texture and colour are the main characteristics in these paintings.

We are happy to introduce a new artist to the gallery, painter Richard Barrett who is South Yorkshire based but grew up by the coast, and the inspiration for his painting is rooted in both land and sea. “My work is driven by the elements, the changing dynamics of weather and light and how this breathes life into the landscape.” The seascapes and landscapes that emerge have a suggestive, abstracted quality. They invite the viewer in – to find their own interpretation, their own personal story.

Also paintings by Colin Carruthers is a midlands based painter. Colin paints with oils and acrylics, mainly with a palette knife - creating textured surfaces by applying paint to the canvas as thickly as possible. The oil paint dries slowly, allowing him to build layers in which the marks of the palette knife are often still visible – creating interesting and dramatic effects.

Including paintings by Giuliana Lazzerini who is a York based painter who works mainly in acrylic and watercolour. “I want to celebrate the beauty of the world that surround us here in Yorkshire in a semi-abstract way. My love for colour combined with carefully constructed composition in which I hopefully achieve a pleasing balance. Appreciating what we have, the landscape, nature, coastline and the sea and all that beautiful inviting memories and the imagination. For me the need to allow memory and imagination to interact is vital."

Adding to the painters we have the ceramics by York based Brenda Wright where the inspiration for forms and themes is Ocean Life. Work is made to be handled and used in the home, combining the practical and aesthetic. “I love the soft qualities of clay thrown on the wheel; work is thrown in white stoneware clay which has strength and durability.” It includes a range of bowls, platters and jugs. Decorative and functional ceramics inspired by the beauty of the sea and the life which lives within.

Exhibition based on the article in the Yorkshire Art Journal by Katherine April Caddy (Founder - Yorkshire Art Journal
Assistant Editor - Ceramic Review and Freelance Arts Writer & Curator) exploring the work of two Yorkshire-based painters. Their work pops up across the county and beyond, notable for its vibrancy and the way it captures and illuminates aspects of the landscape and architecture it draws force from. Both Giuliana Lazzerini and Lesley Seeger use colour to produce tapestry-like paintings that gently flatten and harmonise their subjects, both in terms of content and tonal quality. The artists paintings evoke much about the joy and beauty that can be found in our world.
