Pooley’s concern is less with form or topography more with how the smaller incidents and events of his landscape investigations lodge themselves in his memory and quietly become the subject matter of his resonant painting. That very particular West Cornish light is, of course, always a vital part of this process – as he observes of the works in this show ( Stour ) “I have never appreciated so much how that light can give such dramatic contrasts from hour to hour, day to day, month to month . . . these altered atmospheres . . . interest me increasingly.” NU THUMB nails
