Keep Your Eyes on the Horizon
It’s impressive how a contained painting can make you feel the full expanse of the sea and sky; both staring out at the strong horizon line while hovering over that pooling aqua blue. And those blues... The deep blue of the far ocean mixed with the intense blue of a sun dimming sky. The surfaces crash together like breaking waves or fast-moving skies, with the only thing keeping you on your feet being that hold-steady line, just there in the distance. ‘North-West Passage’, oil on canvas, 56 x 66 cm by Adrian Hemming - part of our current collection by the artist that can be viewed in the gallery until Sunday 6th October.
