DESCRIPTION

Tom Henderson Smith shares his fascination with all those aspects of Cornwall's landscape that suggest human presence. From field patterns to ancient sites, from clusters of buildings to well worn paths, the inspiration for this collection of paintings and drawings is wide ranging. A tragic and haunting image from the history of tin and copper mining in Cornwall also finds a place. Another lived-in aspect of these paintings and drawings is the evidence that they show of how the artist has lingered over colour mixtures, paint layering, brush and finger marks. This has coaxed a feeling of life into these pieces, bringing a lived-in quality to them which, in it's vividness, is a feature of the hand-made image.
