Beside The Wave
After celebrating 30 years of representation at Beside The Wave last year with a collection of paintings from France, Spain and Morrocco, Richard has returned to painting his beloved Cornwall. 'Favourite Places' sees Richard exploring all over the county. From Boscastle and St. Ives on the North Coast to St. Levan, Helford, St. Mawes, Cadgwith, Fowey, Moushole, Portscatho and Port Navas.
Amanda Hoskin is a British artist who on her return to Cornwall in the early 1990's, has become the driving force of contemporary impressionist landscape painting within the South West and indeed across the country. Through her competent understanding of both her subject matter and her medium, Amanda's paintings are a testament of dedication and commitment to her craft. With a fluid, atmospheric approach to big skies and sweeping landforms, Amanda's work is both instantly recognisable and yet able to be interpreted personally. With rich observational skills and a real feeling towards the land she depicts, Amanda's practice is always developing and shifting as the landscape around her does so. This collection of paintings celebrates not only her innate skill and talent as a painter but also the impactful and close relationship she shares with the world she inhabits.
Alan Stratford is a contemporary British artist based in Cornwall who responds to the landscape surrounding him through atmospheric and emotionally charged oil paintings. Alan's work carries a semi-abstracted force which allows the paintings to become autonomous as well as recalling familiar scenes and observations. With a degree in Commercial Graphics from Bristol, Alan has a strong background within the creative industry but it is through his paintings that he has found his way forward, now being represented by numerous galleries across Cornwall. With an unrelenting passion for new discoveries, Alan gathers not only a rich collection of resource material through walking the Cornish landscape but, he is also consistently trying new techniques within painting and allowing play and experimentation to navigate his handling of his material. This collection of paintings shows Alan's balance between figurative and abstract feeling and how this harmony can create evocative and dramatic paintings filled with big skies, crashing waves and the effervescence of changing light.
