Lanes, Hedgerow and Coast Path
12th April – 15th May 2021
Emma’s new collection is inspired by the abundance of natural splendour we witnessed in Cornwall during the spring and early summer of Lockdown #1. As roads were silenced, air traffic ceased and the Cornish weather dazzled, Emma’s attention was taken by the spectacular unfolding of spring in these unusual circumstances. Accordingly, Emma’s paintings take us with her on her daily walks, along lanes and hedgerows overflowing with white hawthorne and yellow gorse, where primroses, snowdrops, bluebells, luscious green foliage and wildflowers merge to create a symphony of colour against a backdrop of clear blue skies and waters. These beautiful paintings celebrate a unique and wondrous moment in nature, one that accompanied the darkest and most difficult months of our recent history.
Adam Buick’s new Emergence collection considers the sea, in particular the boundary between sea and land, and coastal communities whose mutual experience of the sea is a relationship that stretches back thousands of years. Ideas of shared space, beginnings and endings, dreams and horizons, and of our love and fear of the ocean, are all explored in his distinctive and elegant Moon Jar forms, this time with an emphasis on a palette of subtle whites.
