Gareth Edwards, Seeing the Light

17 Jun-29 Jun 2024

Jill George Gallery
London W1T 4RJ


'Seeing the Light' is Gareth Edwards' fifth solo exhibition at Jill George Gallery and consists of new paintings inspired by the Cornish coastline and Devon River landscapes.

Both embrace water from the land, the one tidal and unforgiving and the other more tranquil and reflective. But the connection is 'Riddled with Light' as Yeats describes or 'Seeing the Light, with its biblical and poetic references (Heaney after Yeats). 

These paintings in the exhibition shine with the uplifting effects of light on water: from Rivers to Oceans to the restful lights of a harbour at twilight.

Working from his sketch book, the paintings have been produced in his studio on Porthmeor Beach in St Ives, famous for its light qualities.
