‘Chasing the Light’ A series of romantic landscapes with paintings by Julia Entwistle and photography by John Bentley.
Julia has recently appraised her work and realised that the majority of her paintings created are bathed in a ‘half-light’. This soft, subdued light of early dawn or dusk, partially obscures the landscape lending itself to an ethereal, almost haunting quality which appeals to her immensely, capturing her imagination whilst creating these stunning impressionist paintings of the romantic northern landscape.
It’s this response to light and mood that John captures and produces in his photography. As a child, he spent a great deal of his summer holidays up on the Isle of Skye and fell in love with the dark foreboding mountains and stormy skies. This has always stayed with him and he tries and captures this very atmospheric mood in all his work.
It is our beautiful but sublime northern landscape that has captivated both John and Julia’s hearts that make them the true romantic artists of our day!
This exhibition will run on until November 21st 2016.
