Kate Bell and Graham Parker

Edge of Landscape

Swansea’s Elysium studio artists Kate Bell and Graham Parker come together in an elemental exhibition entitled ‘Edge of Landscape’ which opens at the gallery on the 28th June and runs until the 18th July.

Private Viewing Saturday 29th June.

The exhibition showcases the artists’ differing approaches to landscape. 

Kate Bell is concerned with nature and transitional space. She constantly questions the boundary between representation and pure abstraction, expanding the notion of how land and seascape are explored and understood. 

Kate says: 

“A close relationship with the Gower coast has generated an ongoing series of work, most recently paintings have been inspired by the poetry of Vernon Watkins, the Welsh metaphysical poet who also lived on the coast of Gower. The concept of space, both actual and pictorial, implications of time and place, movement through shifting tidelines, weather and light materialise in these paintings. “

Graham Parker also explores relationships between sky, land and sea. His expressive horizons and seascapes capture the fascination that endures in coastal places. 

Graham says:

"I’m drawn to the horizon and the boundless possibility it offers. The compelling illusion of how land,sea and sky connect, challenges our understanding of reality and completeness.  We can see and feel, but never reach, this beguiling vanishing point. My aim as a painter is to draw the viewer into the space that separates earth from sky."
