The exhibition will be hosted in the private gallery space of British collector Simon Draper from the 25-28 of September and will then transfer to Candida Stevens Gallery where the exhibition will continue from the 2-13 of October.
Two highly regarded British landscape artists, Jeremy Gardiner and Calum McClure, exhibit their first body of work inspired by Sussex. Gardiner directs his spatially probing and texturally explicit style towards some of the iconic viewpoints of the coastline, including Seven Sisters, Birling Gap, Belle Tout, Beachy Head, Seaford, Cuckmere Haven, and Hastings Castle and Pier. McClure looks inland to the woodlands and the inlets, using his perspective as a Scot to explore those views which seem particularly English. He also looks to engage with the relationship between public and private spaces through his depictions of Iping Common and Petworth House, as well as focusing on the representation of light, shadow and reflection throughout the series.
