Adrian Hemming: In Search of Snow

Beside The Wave Cornwall is delighted to be hosting our first collection for highly acclaimed artist Adrian Hemming. 'In Search of Snow' consists of twelve paintings inspired by the energy and movement in the mountains of Abruzzo, Italy.

'I am a landscape painter. Not a painter of scenic beauty or topographical views: but a painter of nature. I believe that the medium of painting, like poetry still provides the onlooker with a direct communication. My work as an artist is profoundly influenced by travel. To travel, is different from going on holiday. I don't travel to find the perfect landscape. Notions of the sublimeare no longer the holy grail of the artist. However the restless nature of travelling, the constant expectation of the next sensations all inform and help the artist make the work.'- Adrian Hemming.

Adrian Hemming was born in Leicester in 1945. Following an engineering apprenticeship he travelled widely. He later studied a Foundation Course at Lincoln College of Art. His B.A. was completed at Brighton Polytechnic (1973) and his M.A. at Goldsmith's College, London University (1982).
