'Personal journeys across land and sea...' Peter Rees creates 'Crossings': an exhibition of new paintings in the Small Gallery.
"...It seems much of what we do is about moving from one place to another. Geographical , emotional, or personal, we are almost constantly ‘crossing’ from one place to another. In one sense, for me, it's moving from a literal interpretation of the landscape to a more evocative, abstract sense of place.
Any movement or 'Crossing' in life comes with a whole set of fears, insecurities, anticipation and excitement. This body of paintings explores a sense of the unknown, titles are quite deliberately nonspecific and composition plays with horizontals and verticals, reflection and light. The process of leaving and arriving is a multi-sensory experience that alters our perspective and necessitates a fresh look at everything..." - Peter Rees
