This is the second annual show by the “Teign Three” artists, Clare Jenkinson, Alan Gregory and Chris Pitman, following last year’s successful “Power of Three” Exhibition at the Artizan Gallery, Torquay. This year, the three are delighted to be exhibiting in the intimate surroundings of Birdwood House, Totnes.
The theme of this year’s exhibition owes much to local poet Alice Oswald’s Dart collection, as they are exploring the life of a river as it flows from source to sea, from Tor to Shore: moorland; river banks; pebble-beds; estuary; cliff-edge; and shoreline. Individually in their work there is often a focus on boats, jetties, the particular buildings that have evolved along the water’s edge, the effects of light on water, sky and sea, and the shapes and patterns that water creates. This joint project brings their different responses to the subject together.
These responses vary from Clare’s expressionistic colourist approach to the subject, which shows a fascination with the reflections created in the water by the surroundings and movement along and through the river, through Alan’s impressionistic explorations of the dramatic interactions between sky and landscape, to Chris’s “painterly realist” style with its particular interests in boats and waterside architecture. These different interpretations of a unified theme should provide interest for art lovers of different persuasions.
