British Abstract artist Jerry Browning has produced a stunning new collection of work inspired by the estuaries, bays and headlands around the Camel River, Padstow Bay, Rock and the surrounding Cornish coastline.
Taking advantage of the enforced quiet and solitude during lockdown, Browning was able to roam the area undisturbed, finding the perfect vantage points along the coast path and inland walks, where he could spend all day and every day, capturing the magnificent landscape spread out before him.
The new collection has a renewed freshness, a clarity, to the work on the canvas. The lines are pure, the brushstrokes clean, sharp and well defined. It is easy to imagine sitting with the artist and sharing his vision of majestic headlands, coppery fields giving way to the stark blue cliff edge, the ever changing surface of the waters of sea and river.
This is a glorious part of the South West and signifies a welcome return for Browning who spent many years painting in and around St Ives in the 1970s and 80s.
