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
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.

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.
