The Coastline


28th June - 16th July


Nicola Rose and Polly Dutton will be exhibiting some of their vibrant work based on coastal images 



Nicola Rose

I seek to capture the essence of the weather, natural structures, and water through the use of oil paint. The paintings are a personal response to the extreme forces of nature. My fascination with wild places has been on going in my life and in my work, places that are always at the mercy of the elements, the power, and drama of waves, skies and the edge of land always changing. The space between myself and the horizon is infinite and fascinating.

My starting point is drawing /painting on site in all weathers to get down the essential energy of the place and moment, these beginnings are then developed into paintings on canvas in the studio. The paint is layered allowing the work to evolve over time, creating a rich history of colours and textures.


Polly Dutton


Polly Dutton

Polly endeavours to capture the elements; sun, wind, rain and the effect these have in the landscape. The mark making is spontaneous and she uses various mediums to create work that is vibrant, energetic and atmospheric. She enjoys using a strong, recurring motif that abstracts the images into rhythmical patterns of colour, contrast and tone.

Polly often works by visiting the landscape a number of times, creating pencil and charcoal sketches to inform the final work. She will then work to finish the work in her studio. Polly also may work quickly and spontaneously in the landscape to capture the changing light and create a painting in one session.

Polly’s recent body of work has been inspired by the shoreline and sea around West Wittering.  Polly has created the abstract works as a direct response to her emotion to create works that are raw, immediate and alive.

Polly’s work is with collectors throughout the UK, USA and Australia.
