The Artists

Marie Mills I am totally addicted to painting. I move the paint around to create shapes, controlling and letting go of the control is what excites me! Sculpting with brushes, palette-knives and my fingers. I constantly experiment with colour, shape and texture. All my work is done rapidly so as not to lose the spontaneity and in order to capture the beautiful chaos that adorns our landscape.

Mungo Powney I have tried to make these paintings alive like the subject, a beach, an interior or whatever it may be, always fighting to give the painting an inner light. I think a painting of a beach is meaningless unless it captures some of the delight that you felt as a child. Typically each painting is thoroughly planned with many layers of under colours with a very impulsive and high energy final layer. It is in this final layer that I have sought to enjoy the colour as sincerely as a child. I tried to challenge myself with varied subject matter so that the works contrast nicely together. All my paintings are done from life for a more direct response.

Tom Holland As I have said before I can honestly say it was the Scillies that inspired me to paint. Surrounded by wonderful colours and shapes. The islands are a constant inspiration to me. I always love painting the Scillies. I hope you enjoy this collection of work.

Paul Wadsworth This collection of landscape works have come together from times spent painting on the Isles of Scilly and the north coast of Cornwall. All works are done on location using either oils or acrylic. I love the energy of painting out in the landscape, be it whatever weather comes my way.

John Dyer For me life is about family, fun, colour and taking an optimistic view of the world. When I paint on Tresco my work naturally records and celebrates all of these elements. The paintings are a narrative of my life and hopefully radiate positive energy and love from the canvases. I don't even try to paint exactly what I see and I don't paint only what I feel - but I do paint that space in-between the two and that is why I paint. Only a painting can visualise this. My dream is that when you look at my paintings you see your story.

Stewart Edmondson To paint down on Rushy Porth, with a soft breeze in your face, the early morning sun sparkling brighter than anything across the wet sand, tide rushing in, curlews calling, barefoot and that bright sand between my toes … skin still tingling from the swim … it doesn’t get better than this. It’s been a real joy to come back to Tresco to paint. Thank you. I hope these paintings can touch the memories of this beautiful place.

Myles Oxenford I first visited the Scillies to get married. I fell in love with the contrasts between the freshness and the calm – the still trees against ever moving seas and light. The islands to me are about movement and time, the rocks and changing sands – sculptures moulded by the lively sea and weather. You cannot help but feel extra awake in the shifting brightness and breezes of the Scillies and I have tried to capture this essence of the islands in my paintings.

Chris Hankey I have always been fascinated by nature and weather, watching Atlantic storms that roll in throughout the year, observing the universe through my telescope, long distance cycling, drawing and painting the landscape and seascapes. This constant interaction with nature has had a profound effect on my philosophical outlook. I am not religious and view the emergence of consciousness as the universe becoming self aware. There is a profound connection between consciousness and nature, a creative energy to the way the sea, earth, atmosphere and artist interact, and light.

Nicky Walker I spent my time on Tresco this year doing lots of oil sketches on paper from the window in Driftwood. Funny how one can get hooked on a single view point, but so much can happen in just a few moments making it an endlessly changing scene; the wind gets up and causes unbelievable patterns of light that dance on the sea, clouds scud across dark skies, raindrops fall, then out comes the sun that changes everything in an instant. Suddenly the sky is a piercing blue. It's all a matter of trying to capture the moment. These paintings are of snatched moments.
