Sun and Shadow: Silver Linings – exhibition in Leyburn, N Yorks
October 20 - November 1Free
An exhibition of new oil paintings by Judith Bromley.
Artists statement: There is something about the transitory nature of clouds flowing over our dales landscape, which hasbeen created by ancient geological changes over eons of time, that draws me to watch and paint. Theshadows describe the shapes of the fells and dales, patches of sun highlight fields and walls fashionedby human hands over centuries: time and space, light and shadow. Coming back to painting after a break, following the challenging but successful ‘Climb up to the Moor’exhibition, I have immersed myself again in the act of translating into paint on canvas the effect of thechanging climate on cloudscapes, valley and moorland. The sky reflects my churning emotions: a sudden squall,the gradual build-up of cumulus as a storm develops, the peaceful secrecy of morning mist, the fiercerage of a stunning daybreak and the glory of the setting sun. High up on the fells I experience a differentperspective, an overview, on the troubles and complexities of life. I feel passionately about our planet earth, and have got to know intimately this small part, my home.
