MOHAMED HASSAN IN THE SPOTLIGHT

Each month a different King Street Gallery artist is featured in our Spotlight Room. Throughout July photographer Mohamed Hassan will be showing his work in a breathtaking new exhibition which explores the rugged beauty of Wales.

"Living and studying in Wales has been pivotal to my journey as an artist,” Mohamed told us. “When I first arrived here I felt as if I was in a dream, and as I discover and explore more of Wales I find inspiration all around.

“Whether I am packing up my camera and trekking up the Carmarthenshire Fans or taking a gentle walk on a Pembrokeshire beach I feel blessed to experience and photograph these incredible landscapes.

“The joy of a cloudy day or an inspiring location is immense. I work in both black and white and colour, focusing on the mood and light of the scene. My work often has subtle and subdued characteristics and aims to draw you into the image I am making, evoking an emotional response."

“Mohamed Hassan in the Spotlight” runs throughout July. For more information on Mohamed’s work please click here.

 

KATE BELL AND GRAHAM PARKER PRESENT “EDGE OF LANDSCAPE”

Swansea’s Elysium Studio artists Kate Bell and Graham Parker join forces in an elemental exhibition entitled ‘Edge of Landscape’ which runs in the Chate Room until 18th July. 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."
