Saturday 22nd July – Saturday 16th September 2023
‘A Sense of Place’ is the first major solo exhibition by Tickhill based artist Ian Davenport. It represents work completed over the last 18 months whilst studying for a Degree in Fine Art. As a contemporary landscape artist, inspired by the open spaces and big skies of Northern England, this body of work describes an emotional connection to place through a bold use of colour, texture and gestural marks.
Ian said: ‘Art has taught me how to see the world in sharper focus, to be mindful of the passing seasons, how colour and light changes with the fleeting weather, and how this can bring beauty to an otherwise ordinary view.’
The artist will be visiting us on Saturday 9th September, 10am-3.45pm to give a landscape painting demonstration.
