Jill George Gallery presents Fallen From Heaven / Gareth Edwards
‘Fallen from Heaven’ (from Ted Hughes) is a new collection of landscape paintings made during the lockdown from his studio in St Ives, Cornwall, whilst enjoying the tranquility and beauty of the area.
Each of the paintings invites the viewer in to the fictive spaces therein encouraging contemplation and personal connections along a remote trail of memory. The operate much like poems in that they relate to the viewer, with half remembered places and terrains triggering personal associations.
And like a poem, these paintings are emotional spaces waiting for the viewer to enter with their own thoughts and dreams.
Although many works in this new collection are elegiac in mood and show shades of gentle melancholy, they all, finally, culminate in a subtle light of hope.
There are a series of works on board, of St Michael’s Bay, (Marazion), which is a geological haven with constantly changing weather patterns and St Michael’s Mount in the distance.
Included in the exhibition is a new digital print, ‘Homecoming, St Michael’s Bay’, produced to celebrate Gareth’s 60th birthday at the end of March, available at a special exhibition price of £200.00.
Although the exhibition will be open, numbers will be controlled with all Covid regulations in place.
