CONTEMPORARY PAINTERS

helen booth  |  laura edmunds  |  catrin llwyd evans  |  sarah poland

 

TEN.  x   ORIEL MYRDDIN GALLERY


a collaborative exhibition between TEN., the estate of roger cecil + oriel myrddin gallery, celebrating both contemporary painting in wales + cecil’s important contribution to the medium

“the reputation of cecil’s paintings is hard to ignore – especially for practicing painters. the seriousness, independence + diligence of cecil practice is renowned + his sensitive treatment of paint admired

similar + overlapping qualities exist between the painters, which is dominated by the expressive use of paint as a material; from pure abstraction seen in edmund’s work; to the tradition of plein air painting, common in poland’s practice. booth’s deep love for the welsh landscape + the abstraction of the figurative prevalent in the work of llwyd evans can all find reference to cecil’s output

the viewer might connect a visual resemblance between the four painters + cecil – whether thematically, through a similar palette or in the treatment of materials – but the comparison here is far greater than visual language alone. the impulse of a painter, the sensibilities + nuances between painters, the influences felt + distilled through looking, experiencing and knowing another artist’s practice is clear to perceive. that which is on offer to the audience, as it reads and responds to each of the artists on display, is the same – an emotional, intellectual + spiritual expression of human experience as translated through the eyes and hands of kindred spirits.”
