Woods in Winter coming soon to the Sarah Wiseman Gallery in Oxford (25/Nov-31/Dec)

Monday, November 20th, 2017

More spectacular than ever before, Sarah Wiseman Gallery’s Christmas exhibition this year is themed around snowy woods and star-lit winter nights. ‘We’ve asked artists to respond to a theme this year: ‘Woods in Winter’ – which has given the work an exciting new edge,’ says gallery director Sarah Wiseman. ‘Artists like Daniel Ablitt, who specialises in atmospheric landscape, will be making new works that are inspired by Nordic landscape – the woods, mountains and snow that has inspired countless fairy tales and myth.’

The exhibition aims to be a more immersive experience for visitors and those seeking beautiful gifts for friends and family. ‘Woods in Winter’ is so evocative, and is open to many interpretations from artists and makers alike’, says Sarah. ‘You can imagine scenes of fireside tales, intriguing pathways, that hush of snow blanketed everywhere- we’re very excited to see what artists come up with!’

New to the gallery will be Flora McLachlan, whose twilit images are an exploration of ancient and enchanted landscapes. She is best known for her etchings which are carefully constructed and layered with various techniques to achieve a time-worn look and softly lit atmosphere. One of McLachlan’s painting is shown here courtesy of the artist and Sarah Wiseman Gallery.

Sarah Wiseman Gallery presents Spring Exhibition in April featuring new works by Charlotte Cornish, Jane Walker and other gallery artists

Wednesday, April 5th, 2017
Sarah Wiseman Gallery‘s current Spring Exhibition showcases fresh new work from gallery artists. With a focus on colour, texture and light, the gallery will be filled with exciting new art that is set to inspire.

New paintings by Daniel Ablitt and Andrew Hood will arrive later in the month.
About Charlotte Cornish
Charlotte Cornish is one of the UK’s leading contemporary abstract artists, a distinctive voice in painting today. Her spectacular use of colour and energetic mark-making reveals a fascination with the endless possibilities of paint, exploring its qualities through layering and pouring it onto the canvas. Acrylic paint is her preferred medium as this dries relatively quickly, allowing her to build up many layers. You can take a look at available works here.

On Daniel Ablitt

‘My surroundings often provide the starting point for my work. This could be a visit to an area of outstanding natural beauty, woodland and alpine forests having a significant influence, along with the landscape of South Somerset where I live and work.  My memories of my childhood also have a strong influence on my work, conveying a sense of nostalgia.

I am concerned with using paint to evoke a mood or atmosphere and am fascinated by the stillness that can be found in these part-imagined, part-remembered places. I am also interested in the possibilities of the paint itself, with the result that parts of the work often verge towards abstraction. Unusual and dramatic compositions encourage the viewer to look at their environment in a new way.

I have had a long-standing interest in the human form. The placing of a solitary figure or a mysterious group in the landscape provides a focal point and adds a narrative aspect to the work. These pieces often have a magical, fairytale quality and can leave the viewer with more questions than answers.’
