About

ARTIST'S COMMENTARY: This exhibition draws attention to a selection of the landscape series I have been working on over the last year. It also includes some of the latest works. Both are investigations into painterly light and depth. The landscape series began with a desire to somehow compress my personal feelings about the world and remain objective about it whilst still depicting images of the world. By focusing on the formal qualities of painting rather than 'clever' subject matter, I felt able to allow greater room for viewer interpretation. Lately I have decided to begin working on a flat, grid-like surface that allows me to then push this illusion of depth further. The landscape paintings relied on perspective to create depth and a sense of time, here I have removed any drafted perspective in favour of a depth created through light trapped in the layers of oil in the painting. This light is offset by the intense white holes painted on top of the surface. I intended these to be the most optimistic works I have made to date. A light at the end of the tunnel. - Robert Sherwood Private view 11th November, 6-9pm
