Louise Catrell - Light In Time

CCA Galleries International

Event Overview

A new exhibition of Louise’s subtly contemporary, yet timeless landscapes. Laura Cummings, Chief Art Critic for the Observer and winner of the James Tait Memorial Award for ‘The Vanishing Man’, her biography on Valasquez, openly compares the work to Turner. She calls Louise ‘a romantic for the twenty-first century’. She explains ‘What makes these works so different from the romanticism of the past is the embodied sense of passing through the landscape, of passing through time, of moving towards something in the distance that seems always slightly out of reach’. Highly evocative of the light and magnitude of this extraordinary part of the world, ‘these paintings express the way we experience such places, as much as what we actually see’.

Artist Workshop - Friday 11th October, 10-4pm ( please call gallery 01534 739900 for details)

Gallery Open - Saturday 12th October, 11- 2pm with an artist's talk at 11am
