'Change of Direction', acrylic on aluminium by Angela Charles



This show brings together two landscape painters who share a passion for the expressionistic approach to landscape. Their work is about finding the balance between figuration and abstraction and the feeling of being in the landscape as well as observing it.

Angela Charles' painting comes out of 60's abstract expressionism where the gestural marks convey the feeling of being in the landscape. Spiky pencil lines are offset against sweeping brush marks creating a tension between the marks which echoes the contrast, for example, between a crashing wave and a seagull gliding on an updraft.

Louise Balaam is masterful at conveying the essence of the landscape with big gestural brush marks. Looking at her work, one gets a strong experience of the changing English weather which comes through the energetic physicality of her marks.

Vibrant, life enhancing and joyous landscapes from two painters at the top of their game.
