RESPONSES IN COLOUR
MARTIN GOOLD | JEANNETTE HAYES | SUSAN LAUGHTON | LOUISE McCLARY | REBECCA McLYNN
10 JUNE – 14 JULY
The highly regarded Contemporary Art Gallery in Morcombelake, Artwave West presents an
exhibition of five distinguished artists.
Martin Goold will feature new pastel paintings using strong colour contrasts inspired by recent visits
to Italian cities. A dynamic geometry holds the compositions together, revisiting his fascination with
the artistic movements of Constructivism and Vorticism and their associations with architecture,
hard edges and machine forms.
By contrast, also using pastel as her chosen medium, Swedish born Jeannette Hayes VPPS will display
landscapes that are constructed out of lines and blocks of evocative colour. A love of the
exquisiteness and drama of the natural world conveys itself in the drawn marks, gestures and
accents of colour.
The quiet, understated landscapes by Susan Laughton are inspired by half glimpses, memories and
references to man-made structures such as telegraph poles and farm buildings within their natural
milieu. Beautifully crafted surfaces are flooded with monochromatic colour before delicate linear
work is added.
The Cornish landscape that Louise McClary has lived in and felt for on a profoundly embracing level
has driven her work. Delicate intertwined ribbons of paint suggestive of natural organic elements
and dusty powdery tints sensitively brushed in to evoke various light effects are the feature of her
Remote and expansive landscape is the inspiration behind Rebecca McLynn’s work. Through
investigating these locations her paintings distill the power and atmosphere of nature and reveal a
strongly felt human connection to domain. Paint flows and runs freely, expressing the sense of space
that she experiences, but surprising intricacy also acts on the viewers perception.
This exhibition will surprise, delight and enthrall visitors; colour is used with different atmospheric
effect by each artist to express their individual response to environment. For a chance to meet and
discuss the exhibition with the artists come along to the Private View on the 10th June from 6-8pm.
Please contact the gallery for further details.
Open Tuesday to Saturday 10-5pm.
