This latest exhibition brings together three landscape artists Karl Davies, Peter Kettle FRSA RCA, and Euan McGregor PAI. From beautiful landscapes of Wales and Patagonia to modernist images of Barry Island’s colourful beach huts and ink and wash pictures of miners and farmers, there is certainly something to suit every taste.
Karl Davies, who lives in Pontypridd, is a landscape artist and uses the South Wales landscape as his inspiration. He has used ink and wash to produce his latest work for the gallery. He said: “The new work is drawn in one of my favourite media – ink and wash. I love the way you can make 2D forms into 3D very quickly with it. The exhibition has a mixture of miners, farmers and soldiers. There are mothers and fathers holding babies, so there is a theme of family also. One of my personal favourites is a school scene at the end of the day.”
Peter Kettle’s latest collection explores the quiet wilds of Wales and its calm and wind-lashed coastline. Among the series is a fresh look at his Patagonia expedition, showcasing new paintings influenced by the sketches and memory of walking the Andes mountain range. “There are pieces that I have been working on for months, that have been labours of love, and scenes from Wales I have revisited with a fresh perspective, in particular the Ogmore coast, Vale of Glamorgan, and Three Cliffs in Gower. I’m thrilled to bring the larger works to the Albany.”
Euan McGregor lives and works in West Kilbride producing painting and mixed media work of mostly marginal or fringe spaces. He draws upon his roots in printmaking giving his work an emphasis on mark-making and shape. He has an interest in all things Modernist and his influences include Hockney, Piper and the St Ives school in Cornwall. He said: “These are a collection of square format smaller works. They are of coastal scenes from various places around the UK including some local to Cardiff, like the pink hut and Barry beach huts. All are acrylic on board.”
