Vanessa Gardiner’s magnificent new paintings make a thrilling first view when you come in to the DORSET NOW exhibition. The series entitled Cliff Wall – inspired by the coast around Boscastle in Cornwall – are particularly alluring, the abraded surfaces alive with mystery and veils of colour.
Against these are set her crisp, clean and crystalline Portland paintings. Blocks of dazzling white freshly quarried Portland stone stand in full sun and in shadow in the foreground against clear blue seas, the coast beyond going towards Lulworth.
