This latest exhibition links three painters who create stunning landscapes and seascapes.
Many of us look at a view and are able to notice the stormy sea, the lush green grass or the blue skies. We all have our own interpretations of colour, mood and atmosphere and that’s certainly true for the trio of artists who are exhibiting. The show features newcomer Lou Moore alongside renowned Welsh artist Gareth Thomas and architect turned painter Gerald Green. The exhibition is a perfect example of how painters interpret scenes, exploring the use of light and colour.
Lou Moore is a landscape artist who paints beautiful pictures that not only portray the surroundings as she sees it, but that also act as a metaphor for different experiences in her life. Each painting has a reason for its creation, whether it be warm or happy, or dark and brooding. There are gardens with the sunshine peeping through trees as well as almost ghostly pictures of trees sitting silently on a cold autumn morning.
Gerald Green’s work portrays many things from alfresco dining to Welsh cottages and even a garden sink. He relinquished his career as an architect to become a painter and he loves to paint pictures that become impressions of everyday life and events. There are many images of Venice, including umbrellas on the Rialto Bridge, as well as moorings along the Seine and a boatyard in Sussex.
Reputed Swansea artist Gareth Thomas is also exhibiting and the paintings for the exhibition are mostly oil paintings, with landscapes and seascapes of Gower, North Wales, France and Venice. Gareth, from Swansea, has recently suffered from two strokes, which means that he now paints in his studio from sketches, rather than on the spot. As well as paintings from Gower and Venice, there are also ones from France, a country of which he is very fond. Despite his health setbacks, Gareth is so grateful that he is able to continue as an artist.
