Join O3 Gallery this Christmas as we celebrate the beauty of the British landscape through an exhibition of work by various artists. Snow-covered fields outlined by dark copses and hedgerows are highlighted by modest farm buildings and houses emanating warmth. Wild moorlands are realised on paper – embracing nature at its most dramatic.

About

Exhibiting artists include Jason Hicklin who actively walks the landscape (most recently the coasts of Scotland) and transforms his sketches into powerful etchings.

Gerry Dudgeon depicts the Dorset landscape during the heavy snowfalls of 2010; journeying across white-blanketed fields with a sketchbook and camera. Mark Stopforth devotes himself to capturing the untamed landscapes that can be found in the Moors, Fens, Fells and Estuaries of Britain. 

Local artist Julie Wigg paints without restriction and is inspired by Monet’s thoughts that as nature changes so rapidly, a painter must ‘fix’ these changes (a cloud passing or the wind breaking a reflection on water) as quickly as possible in rapid strokes upon the canvas.

Rod Craig; another Oxfordshire-based artist, favours the fluidity and spontaneity that Indian ink and watercolour allows. Creating a ‘sense of place’ in his expressive pieces; Craig’s work depicts a mood or atmosphere rather than realism.

Through the medium of oil, ink and etching, the harsh beauty of the landscape during winter is captured in dynamic form in this exhibition at O3 Gallery. Natural, organic lines remain untamed and evoke a powerful and alternative viewpoint of recognisable horizons.
