Wave energy

Paintings by Janette Kerr PRWA Hon RA & Alex Uxbridge

Pillier out Skerries V27 April – 16 June  in the Rope Gallery at Sladers Yard.  Wave Energy brings together two artists who paint the sea from islands off the British Isles.

ARTISTS’ TALK with Alex Uxbridge and Janette Kerr PRWA Hon RA on Friday 10 May 6.30pm.  Tickets: £8 / £20 with supper.  Please phone 01308 459511 to book.

Janette Kerr’s contemporary and experimental paintings of sea and sky off Shetland are the result of a passionate elemental study of wave formation, both through drawing and painting from the rocks right on the edge of the ocean, and through her research project, Extreme Wave Theory, in association with Norwegian oceanographers.

Alex Uxbridge’s relationship to the sea is one of childhood memories revisited. He grew up in Plas Newydd, the stately home overlooking the Menai Straits on Anglesey, and often visits his parents who live there still. His paintings have an immediate charm, a pleasure in rural life lived in dramatic scenery, wind and weather, but it is their strong sense of composition, bold brushstrokes, exciting and original use of colour that make them memorable in themselves.
