In Extremis Images of Landscape

In Extremis Images of Landscape

C.R. Brownridge and Deborah Westmancoat

This exhibition is concerned with understanding landscape and our place within it.

Both exhibiting artists have worked extensively in the South West, particularly Somerset and Devon.  C. R. Brownridge (1947-2010) was intensely interested in the visual drama of landscape in extremis when high winds, snow, ice or heavy rains had charged a specific landscape with raking light or intense stillness.  This interest was underpinned by study of weather and climate change due to global warming. Flooded landscapes became a life long interest as well as a source of enduring concern. 

Deborah Westmancoat is a contemporary painter based in Somerset.  She is engaged in a long-term project researching the four classical stages of alchemy and how these might become apparent within the natural environment.  Streamwater, puddles, hoar frost and hailstones were collected from sites around Dartmoor and incorporated into recent paintings, each subtly referencing the inherent mystery and charge of water found in quiet places.

Printmaking workshop with Anita Reynolds

Participants will create prints incorporating their own words from the question "What does Dartmoor mean to you?"

These can be descriptive such as fauna and flora, geological & industrial, linked to weather, sounds, as well as emotional responses to the national park.

A fun and creative day.

Selected Works - Robert Lenkiewicz (1941-2002)

Selected Works - Robert Lenkiewicz (1941-2002)

Lenkiewicz drew inspiration from the people of Plymouth, using them as models for large public murals and reflecting their lives in exhibitions or ‘Projects’ on social issues which uncovered taboo themes such as ‘vagrancy’, ‘mental handicap’, old age and death. 

Showing diary notes, preparatory sketches and finished canvasses this exhibition curated by The Lenkiewicz Foundation, provides insight into some of the ideas and inspiration behind his work and reveals a side of his creativity that is seldom seen through diary notes,  preparatory sketches and finished canvasses.
