Here and There
17th August at 10:00 am - 7th September at 5:00 pm
Here and There is Paul Needles eighth exhibition at The Guild Gallery. It shows paintings, drawings and prints that explore the differences and similarities between the landscapes of The United Kingdom and Spain.
Comparisons are drawn between the lush landscapes of the West Country and the rugged Tramuntana mountains of Mallorca, between the sun drenched waves and beaches of the Costas of southern Spain and the waterways of Britain. Concentrating on light and colour, the paintings attempt to draw the onlooker into the scene and engage them with the same excitement that the artist feels.
As well as large paintings, the exhibition includes drawings and studies, some made in situ, others from hastily taken photographs. Many of the studies are preludes to some of the larger pieces but others stand in their own right.
