The theme of this exhibition celebrates new work created by two artists: Yorkshire ceramicist Michele Bianco and Scottish-based Swiss painter, Pascale Rentsch. Both are inspired by getting out into hidden areas of the countryside and observing the landscape around them.
From time spent on long-distance walks and the coastal paths of North Yorkshire and Northumberland to the Western Isles and Scottish Lochs, both artists draw on the effect of the elements on those environments to seek out compositions and shapes to inform their work.
Bianco’s hand carved, ripple vessels in their distinctive cobalt-blue glazes reflect the result of centuries of erosion by water and wind on rock. Rentsch, whose works are created en plein air, capture the immediacy of changing weather and light through the seasons, often working in challenging conditions.
This exhibition runs from 4th March – 2nd April inclusive. Artworks can be seen on this website or in our Harrogate gallery.
