Chasing The Light
Venue: The Galley At St Georges House
When: 23/09/2016 – 20/11/2016
A collaborative exhibition by Julia Entwistle and John Bentley.
Our sublime Northern landscape has captivated both Julia and John’s hearts, making them true romantic artists of our day. This exhibition presents a series of romantic landscapes in both painting and photography.
Julia’s paintings are bathed in ‘half-light’: a soft, subdued light of early dawn or dusk that partially obscures the landscape. Lending itself to an ethereal quality, this light continuously ignites Julia’s imagination as she creates glorious impressionistic landscape paintings.
It is this response to light and mood that John simultaneously presents in his photography. John spent a great deal of his youth holidaying on the Isle of Skye – falling in love with the dark foreboding mountains and stormy skies. This atmospheric mood has stayed with him ever since and is captured in all his work.
