Light in Landscape with Rebecca Barnard

March 1, 2010 at 1:41 pm Leave a comment

Cambridge Contemporary Art will be showing Light in Landscape, a collection of new paintings by local landscape artist, REBECCA BARNARD. Rising early to capture the light, Barnard has travelled England throughout the year to gather images for this body of work.

Using a rustic mix of wax encaustic and oil paint, the work captures, through rugged texture and luminosity of colour, the intrinsic character and beauty of the English countryside and its changing seasons. This year’s harsh weather conditions brought with it opportunities for winter loving artists, and has yielded some stunningly atmospheric works from Barnard.

Says the artist; “A simple thing happens. Light shines through a group of trees or reflects off some water and there is nothing else to do but capture it. I am, and always have been, passionate about the landscape, especially that which I know intimately. I like it best in the mornings when its quietness helps me reflect on what is important for me. I want my work to give back to its viewer, some of that tranquillity and peace.”

The exhibition will run from 28th May until 20th June 2010.
