Moment - Exhibition of paintings by Maria Burton

Details

Introducing our new exhibition of original paintings by Maria Burton.

From August to September we are delighted to host a brand new exhibition in the Gaddum Gallery by Lakes based artist Maria Burton.

Maria morphs what she sees either on location or back in the studio in Penrith. This metamorphosis may attempt to catch a second, several minutes, hours or even years of experience in an energy filled work.

Wherever possible, Maria visits the location she is painting a number of times or indeed observes the wildlife at some length in order to understand its nuances, it’s changes, its habits and behaviour. She has an innate fascination with the outside world in particular and with painting and, in awe of the majesty of fells and mountains, these often provide the stage for atmospheric skies to dance around.

Maria takes every opportunity to study a myriad of artists and her influences include Fred Cuming, Joan Eardley, J.M.W. Turner, Peter Wileman and her current favourite, Christian Hook. Maria has a studio within the Eden Valley Artistic Network Gallery, Penrith, Cumbria. CA117PX
