An exhibition by Barton upon Humber artist Richard Hatfield has just opened at Grimsby’s Abbey Walk Gallery.
The joint exhibition “Spirited Earth – Landscape” with East Riding artist Rob Moore has already received many plaudits from art lovers across the area.
Richard explained that the challenge for Rob and himself was to capture the essence of a landscape whether it be a dominant characteristic, a certain mood or an ambience.
“We explore the universal theme of landscape painting through our own perspective and artistic forms,” said Richard.
“Contemporary landscape is interpreted in the painting through an artist’s particular viewpoint, inspiring us to consider how we have interacted with nature and our surroundings and how we will continue to do so,” he went on.
“The colours, scale and nature of a landscape provide a constant source for my image making. The paintings are the amalgamation of the remembered and the fleetingly observed and are an attempt not to reproduce a particular landscape but to capture its essence.”
The exhibition, which continues until October 18, can be viewed Tuesday to Saturday between 9am and 5pm. Entry is free and all ages are welcome
