Neil Pinkett – C to C Exhibition
Neil Pinkett: Cornish Artist – Cumbrian Paintings
In the spring of 2013, just after the heavy snowfalls of a particularly harsh winter, Neil Pinkett undertook an artist’s residency at Brantwood, the former home of John Ruskin in the Lake District which overlooks Coniston Water.
Whilst exploring the area in and around his residency, Neil has managed to capture the mood, light and atmosphere that is true to the Lakes. His thick paintily style bring to life the texture and movement that others often miss from this beautiful, yet wild and weather beaten landscape.
“This group of paintings represents the very small area I covered while walking with sketch pad and sometimes paint and boards through the fells around Coniston. I also worked a little in the Wrynose and Hardnot passes once the snow had cleared. Most of the painting I do is of the sea and the land adjacent to it, so the landscape of the lakes and fells is a complete departure. Before travelling up my thoughts were vaguely of a rather pretty landscape of sculptured hills, trees and large pools punctuated by tidy cottages and barns. What I found was a dark sleeping giant of a land mass with ribbons of lake water cast around its feet. An achingly beautiful place but cold hard and muscular.”
Neil Pinkett’s collection of works will be exhibited and available to purchase from our showroom and gallery at Peter Hall & Son Ltd.
