Artwave West Gallery in Dorset features enthralling and richly executed paintings by

Louise McClary in their Autumn Exhibition.

Intertwined ribbons of paint and dusty powdery tints sensitively brushed against

luminous mists of colour seem to direct us to natural environments; the Cornish

landscape that McClary has a deep affinity with has indeed constantly driven her work.

Entwined root patterns, overgrown paths, pools of shining water, mists and vapours,

these are all exquisitely suggested in the fields of glowing colour, organic shapes and

meandering lines in the delicately painted surfaces.

A minute intricacy of web-like lines and strands draws us closer and closer into the

painting where we see the history of the making; brushing, drawing and placing

coloured accents over layers almost conceals the numerous shifts and interventions,

but they are still there deep within the complexity.

There are no horizons to be found, no perspectives of the conventional sort, no fixed

points that mark beginning or end, no specific reference to scale or proportion. Instead

everything revolves, floats, diffuses, sparkles, concentrates, undulates, propagates and

disperses. Sensations are quietly nudged: stillness, silence, brilliance, loss or elation.

McClary’s exciting paintings reveal a rich underlying poetry that transcends landscape

reference to leave the most acute sense of a spectacular emotion.

The exhibition will run from 13th November to 19th December, open Wednesday to

Saturday 10-4pm or by appointment.
