The soft light of daybreak and nightfall is refined to an old master quality by artist Benjamin Warner: winter symphonies of mauves and pinks saturate apparent “duo-chrome” compositions, which, when closely viewed reveal the myriad of colours that remain.

Form edges up to abstraction whilst remaining true to the places represented. The iconic lighthouse at the end of Smeaton’s Pier in St. Ives is silhoeutted against the light – instantly recognisable and sparingly described.

‘Winter Months’ is the outcome of a working process which sees layers of paint repeatedly applied and scraped back, leaving the twinkle of winter lights at dusk, as the world settles down for the night. Focused on places intimately known to Warner, this is a collection of evocative and delicate paintings from an artist already recognised as one of the most powerful landscape painters working in Cornwall today.
