Exhibition of revealing Italian landscape paintings

For the past three years London artist, Noel Paine, has been living and working in the

hill-top village of Anticoli Corrado in Lazio, fifty kilometres from Rome. An exhibition of

his latest work will be held at Gallery 27 in London’s Cork Street from 20th to 25th May


Anticoli Corrado has a long association with artists, from Corot to Kokoschka. Through

Paine’s dogged determination to get to the heart and soul of this rugged and

uncompromising landscape, these new paintings take you even closer to a hidden

corner of the Campagna. Twisting hill top roads, embryonic olive trees, overgrown

waterfalls, and eccentric farmers’ gates, all provide unlikely subjects for his concentrated

figuration and abstraction.

Noel explains, “Anticoli provides a landscape of vivid contrasts and intensity. Two

elements integral to my work. A place where the contrasts, man-made and natural,

change rapidly with the seasons and provide the energy my work requires. Every canvas

needs a sense of time. Line, colour, shape and form have always been the starting point

for my paintings and in Anticoli, aided by clear-blue skies, endless wild open spaces and

pervading silence, I have been a witness to the passing of time and the themes I seek to

capture in my work”.

This is the first time that Paine has exhibited these paintings in London. The exhibition

promises to be an exciting event and should not be missed by anyone interested in

serious contemporary landscape painting.

Working drawings, sketches and a series of etchings will be included in the exhibition.
