Carl Melegari & Hannah Woodman

20th October - 18th November

Whether drawing you across the raw, exposed edge of Cornwall’s Atlantic coast, or into the innate character of a living subject, both these artists make the painted surface a dynamic, breathing space.

Exploiting the powerful bond between the artist and the elements, Hannah uses oil on canvas or gesso, watercolour and charcoal on paper to invoke the sense of isolated engagement that she feels whilst creating her potent landscapes.

Muted yet teaming with colour, Carl’s intense sculptural oil on canvas portraits and animal studies engage the viewer with something akin to magnetism. The layers, drips, gestures and marks combine to reveal the presence and personality of each figure.
