GENIUS LOCI

A painterly response by Henrietta Dubrey to works by Peter Lanyon

8 September - 6 October 2018



Sarah Wiseman Gallery is proud to present Genius Loci, an exciting new solo show by one of the U.K's premier contemporary artists, Henrietta Dubrey.

Responding to the works of British painter Peter Lanyon (1918-1964) Henrietta will centre the exhibition around the landscape of Cornwall, namely the stretch of coast between St Ives and Lands End, where she now lives and works, and where Peter Lanyon lived and died.

Henrietta Dubrey's paintings oscillate between figurative elements and abstraction. Semi-autobiographical, Henrietta's paintings are recognisable by their bold lines and shapes that form a 'gestural web'.
Peter Lanyon is one of the most highly regarded British modern painters and was a key artist in the St Ives Group. His works explored the Cornish landscape, with a particular interest in abstraction. He is perhaps most famous for taking up gliding, the aerial views of the landscape informing his later paintings.

As Henrietta explains, 'It is the centenary of the birth of Peter Lanyon. I thought it would be exciting to explore the possible connections with some of the paintings that he made of the area immediately surrounding where I live.'

'The paintings I intend to make will, most probably be abstract in nature and all be a direct response to his technique, subject matter and location. I have always admired Lanyon's work and would like to use this as an opportunity to engage more fully with his paintings and those of other painters who have worked in this beautiful yet rugged landscape running from St Ives to Lands End.'

Graduating from the Royal Academy Schools in 1992, Henrietta Dubrey's paintings have been exhibited nationally and internationally, including at the Royal Academy Summer exhibition, and are in notable private collections such as DeBeers and the Mogford group. She has exhibited with Sarah Wiseman Gallery since 2015 with paintings exhibited in the group shows 'Line and Surface' in 2016 and 'Identities' in 2017, an exhibition profiling the work of contemporary women artists. This will be her first solo exhibition with Sarah Wiseman Gallery.

Framed screen print of 'Balance'.

This is a hand made silk screen print (not a giclee print),
made by professional print maker David D'Silva
who has several decades of experience in the medium, in his
workshop in St Just to the west of Penzance in Cornwall, U.K..
It has over twenty 'separations', which means the same number of
'pulls' or layers of ink each requiring careful analysis of the colours
in the painting, hence not all layers cover the entire print,
and is a process which itself requires a true artist's eye.

The edition is limited to 50, signed and numbered by the artist, with 2 artist's proofs (shown above).

Image size is 42 cms h x 29 cms w.

The print is available from Edgar Modern in Bath, U.K., either unframed
(paper size 57 x 42 cms), price £245.00,
or framed as shown above which is 63 x 50 cms, price £295.00.
