Introducing Amy AlbrightLandscape artist
We are delighted to introduce new gallery artist Amy Albright. Through her landscape paintings you may be transported to a misty evergreen lakeside, a distant coastal cliff shrouded by mist or deep underwater in a turquoise expanse. Amy Albright's subjects can be quite vast, sometimes veering towards abstract, other times quite recognisable landscapes but there is always an element of intrigue and unknown.
A subtle tonal ranges of colour is used; an inky consistency of oil paint caresses the canvas, often creating misty, watery and indistinct images that are half imagined, half real.
An explorer and lover of the natural world, the underwater world and the ever changing elements, Amy takes inspiration from her travels, recently Iceland and of course the dynamic changing weather, tides and coastline of Cornwall where she lives. Focusing on the boundaries of where land and water merge together is an ongoing and perhaps never ending focus for Cornwall born artist Amy Albright.
Trevor Price | A new series of prints
For the past 18 months, Trevor Price has been working on a new body of work inspired by nature. These intricately detailed drypoint and engraved relief prints are at first glance seemingly like a photographic print. However, the prints are in fact created using a polycarbonate sheet (a kind of plastic) into which Trevor will scrape and carve the image with a drypint needle and a dremmel. The process is extremely labour intensive and each plate for printing has taken several months to complete.
The compositions are highly representational and one can enjoy the imagery on this level, simply as beautiful views of nature. Close up however, the artist's intention is for the viewer to get lost in the detailed mark-making and the abstraction of each aspect. All work is hand printed by the artist. With some of the prints, the paper has been stained to give a sense of age and the feel of an old sepia photograph.
