DESCRIPTION

Landscape painter James Urmston’s latest exhibition is a new series of meticulous and dazzling works that focus on visually complex landscape scenes.  These are landscapes of shimmering light and fine detail.  Many of his paintings mimic an abstract painter’s concern with the “all-over” while remaining true to his landscape subject matter.  Dense, twisting branches, foliage bathed in glimmering light, roots, rocks, gnarled trees and eroding hillsides are examined and interpreted with a keen eye, capturing minute intricacies while remaining flowing and spontaneous.  Urmston is a master of his tradition and anyone interested in landscape painting will be thrilled by his work, as will lovers of painting in general.
