Miles Heseltine: Hillsides and Headlands

Miles Heseltine's reputation as a distinguished part of the contemporary Cornish art scene has been very well earnt. This artist is often found on monumental cliff tops with a colossal sheet of paper rolled out in front of him, stones used to anchor the corners to the rugged ground, working intuitively and quickly to capture a particular moment. His approach seeks out essences such as rhythm and suggestions of form, filtering what he sees in front of him to the awe-inspiring elements that have stopped him in his tracks during his daily walks. This inspiration is carried home to his studio and into his thickly layered paintings. The immediacy and energy from his process is distinctively evident throughout his work; with confidently applied brushstrokes, laden with oil paint, reliving the gestural sweeps of charcoal from those moments in the landscape.
This solo exhibition marks 10 years since the artist's inclusion in the ground-breaking exhibition 'Revolver' at the Penzance Art Gallery, grouping Miles with other young mid-career artists that together represented a new confidence and attitude in the contemporary Cornish art scene.
