Four Saeason Exhibition 

Orielriel Lliw Gallery, Pontardawe Art Centre, Herbert St, Pontardawe, Swansea SA8 4ED

Pontardawe Art Centre

Oriel LLiw Gallery - Arts in the Tawe Valley

 

27th April to the 18th June 

My aim with this exhibition is to showcase the beauty of what surrounds us here in Wales. Nature is pure. I'm a firm believer that nature is important for our souls. Our lives are becoming busy and full of distractions. Our "information age" has become more like an ‘overloading age’, full of distractions from our phones, emails, social media, adverts etc. Never more so in our lives have we needed to shut all this out, just to rekindle the soul, and I believe nature is our doorway to this.

This is why I fundamentally love to paint nature, to bring that beauty inside our homes and office's, to uplift the spirit, quieten the mind and allow our hearts to open. By being in the moment we have this reminder of something that is fundamentally bigger than we are.

I chose the subject "Four Seasons" to remind us of the energy of nature. It is like magic unfolding in front if our eyes. Having been born here in South Wales and lived here all my life this subject is close to my heart. I am still in constant wonder of this country, having a child’s eye view of its remarkable beauty.

 

Here are some photos of the exhibition

 

Summer Explosion of Wildflowers

Last Summer, with my dearest friend, we went to the National Botanic Gardens of Wales and came across a meadow of wild flowers that captured my heart.

Bluebells and Wild Garlic

I love the forests that surround us here in Wales especially during the
spring months when there is a carpet of bluebells and a rich scent of wild garlic.

Autumn Golden Grasses

About 20 years ago I spent a lot of time walking my dog on the mountain in Seven Sisters, Wales. I decided to take a trip back a couple of years ago and was in awe of how beautiful it looked. When I’d last seen this field it was agricultural land with animals grazing. With the animals long gone the field had been transformed into gorgeous tall golden grasses that gently swayed in the breeze.

Melincourt Waterfall

I love this waterfall in the Neath Valley. When I first visited it I was just on a walk following a footpath and had no idea there was going to be this beautiful waterfall at the end of the path. It was a special surprise. I’ve since visited it regularly. It has inspired many artists in the past and I’m sure many more in the future.
