We are pleased to host Martin Laurance’s fourth solo exhibition Through the Senses at Mandell’s Gallery.
Featuring mixed media paintings and drawings, the works depict the eroding Norfolk and Suffolk coast, the dramatic landscapes of North Yorkshire; the harsh but beautiful coastline and moorland of Cornwall; as well as the often disquieting former military and nuclear testing site of Orford Ness in Suffolk.
Martin says, ‘My paintings have always been about my experience of being in a particular place, searching out through drawing and walking the uniqueness of that place alone.
I return to the same places over and over again, the drawings building into a connection that transcends time and seasons. This working process allows me to tap into something deeper, an underlying reality.’
Martin Laurance has lived and painted in Norwich for many years. His paintings are exhibited throughout the UK and internationally. His work is in many collections including that of the National Trust.
