‘When the Land Rested’ Curated by Claire Scott “During the first lockdown in 2020, for those first few sunny weeks, it was as though there was a collective sigh of relief and rest happening alongside the sheer awfulness of the Pandemic. The land rested, skies cleared, the roads were quiet and birdsong filled the air. It was my 49th year and a time for reflection. My roots in the farmland of the Shropshire hills, continue to have huge significance to my work, alongside that are the contributions made by others to my practice as an artist. This exhibition is an opportunity for me to express thanks to some of the artists who have in different ways influenced my journey as a painter. Some produce work I return to again and again, some have taught me through the example of their own dedication, some have given encouragement when I had none of my own. An exhibition which coincides with the year of my 50th birthday is a great opportunity to look back with gratitude and forward with hope.” Claire Scott. June 2021


A Snow-Green Sky acrylic on canvas 100 x 100cm £1,850 Claire Scott “Being outside, drawing in all weathers, is an essential part of my practice. It’s a process that embeds memories to the work. In the studio my paintings begin to describe interior landscape as much as a geographical location”

Mick Mannings books were some of our favourites and his participation in this exhibition is my way of acknowledging the impact of those books on our lives.”

Peter Prendergast “I first came across Peter Prendergasts work as an undergraduate. I didn’t have the vocabulary or insight at the time to understand how deeply his intense response to landscape resonated with me. Over the years his work has repeatedly reminded me of the point of painting.”
