In Search of Cornish Light

Lynne Cartlidge, Julia Cooper, Myles Oxenford & Michael Rees

1 - 30 July 2016

 

A mecca for artists particularly throughout the past hundred years, the Cornish peninsula offers not only spectacular landscape and coastal vistas, but a special quality of Atlantic light unique to this part of the British Isles. This exhibition by four painters who have all, at some point of their career, migrated to Cornwall captures the essence of light and effect of coastal atmosphere that continues to inspire so many painters today.

Lynne Cartlidge, born in 1964 in Wellington, New Zealand, lived in Cornwall between 1967 and 1984. She studied art at Falmouth Art College and Cardiff Art College attaining a BA (Hons) Fine Art degree in 1987 when one of her figurative paintings was selected for the Whitworth Young Contemporaries. Lynne's teachers included the painters Terry Setch, Cherry Pickles and Mike Crowther. More recently she has enjoyed studying with Alice Mumford at the St Ives School of Painting and Rose Hilton at the Newlyn School of Art.

 

Julia Cooper’s paintings are made up of layers of pigment and brush marks where she discovers the content of the painting through the process. Julia studied Fine Art and Interior Design and has lived in Cornwall for nearly thirty years. She paints in her studio on the south coast, which looks out across the beautiful harbour of Fowey and rugged cliffs. She has worked with The Cornwall National Trust on their holiday cottage refurbishment programme on Design and Specification.

 

Myles Oxenford, born in 1977 in Plymouth, grew up in Scotland. He has a BA in Art from Falmouth College Of Art and has lived in Cornwall for over 15 years. His work has been shown in galleries throughout the U.K since 2000. Myles lives and works in rural Cornwall where he explores the landscape and waterscapes of his surrounding enviroment with his dog (who he paints on rainy days) and often his surfboard. He also returns frequently to paint in Scotland, Wales and the Alps.

 

Michael Rees, born 1962, has been based in Cornwall for the past thirty years.

Influenced by the work of artists such as Paul Klee, Mark Rothko, Francis Bacon and Giacometti, his paintings on coursely textured canvas and board carry a rich expression of atmosphere and emotion. He has held ten solo exhibitions in London and Cornwall and participated in numerous mixed shows. His paintings can be found in a number of public collections including Pallant House, Chichester, The Falmouth Art Gallery and Anthony Petullo, Milwaukee, USA.
