Entrance to a Lane

Artwork by Peter HicksArtwork by Peter Hicks

Thursday 16 July to Sunday 30 August

Entrance to a Lane is a series of paintings inspired by Peter Hicks' interest in a piece by artist Graham Sutherland, a printmaker creating mostly romantic landscapes in the 1920s. Sutherland developed his art by working in watercolours before switching to using oil paints in the 1940s. It is these oil paintings, often of surreal, organic landscapes of the Pembrokeshire coast, that secured his reputation as a leading British modern artist. This fascination with Sutherland's work has remained with Peter since his early student days. Peter now brings to the subject not only many years of acute observation and developing artistic practice, but his own personal implications of the Romantic Tradition. Come and see his work in 'The Little Picture Show'.
