'Spirit of Place' an exhibition by Martin Moyers and Glynne James

Gunby is excited to welcome Martin Moyers and Glynne James with their new exhibition - 'Spirit of Place' - Landscapes of the Fens and Wolds.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

'Spirit of Place' - Landscapes of the Fens and Wolds draws inspiration from Tennyson country and the surrounding fens. The British landscape has-been an inspiration to artists ,writers , and musicians for generations . Living on the edge of the Wolds is the gateway to essentially Tennyson country. Its undulating hills , lanes and villages have a gentle beauty snugly hidden from the" hurly burly "of the 21st century. Martin's work is representational of the landscape with elements of abstraction and invention inspired by walking the Lincolnshire landscape with his wife and dog Rolo. He has recreated landscapes as it has been observed at a particular moment in time, attempting visually to capture and extract memories, feelings and sense of place as experienced. Glynne James depicts the ever changing and fascinating Fens landscape in a unique personalised style . The paintings are not landscapes in the comfortable Constable sense. They still address the age-old relationship between artist and the natural world but it is evident that the 21st century is upon us, be it in the growing of new crops, the threat of climate change or the understated march of machinery. These paintings wake us from our dreamy preconceptions of what landscape painting is and challenge the viewer to see the landscape and not just look at it .
