South Yorkshire artist Liz Churton is exhibiting her images of the landscapes of Sheffield and Rotherham.

The display will run for a month from Saturday, September 14 to October 13, at Cupola Contemporary Art, Middlewood Road, Hillsborough.

A preview opening evening is on Friday, September 13, from 7.30pm.

Liz said: “I have named this exhibition Powering the Landscape, due to depictions of pylons, wind turbines and other man made structures in the paintings.

“But the title could just have well been called Power In the Landscape, for what it has done, has made me go back, quite literally, to the drawing board and rethink why and how I draw from the landscape.”

The exhibition will comprise drawings and large scale paintings as each of these methods of capturing the essence of the landscape plays an important role in Liz’s work.

Karen Sherwood, of Cupola Gallery, said: “Liz’s landscape paintings have an energy and vibrancy about them created not just by some of the rich colours used but by bold, gestural and almost frenetic mark making at times.

“Close up, Liz’s large paintings are pure abstract mark making, but when viewed from a distance these ‘marks’ reform to create or to imply representations of the sweep of a hill or the leaves of brambles for example.”
