Preview: Sea, Sand, Land – Clew Bay on Reflection:
9th December 2017 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
An exhibition of new paintings and prints by Nickova Behling, reflecting on a 3 month artist’s residence and studio occupancy in Westport, Co. Mayo, Ireland at Custom House Studios, Westport Quay in Summer 2017.
Nickova Behling will give a presentation about her arts residency at the Preview on 9 December, 3.30pm.
The new paintings are highly influenced by the maritime environment Nickova was living in. They are an approach of expressing our emotional response to the landscape we are occupying. Landscape is not something set apart from us but we are imbedded into it and its within us – visually, emotionally and physically.
This exhibition will add to the display at Towner Art Gallery, exploring human responses to the British landscape.
The prints on display are the first approaches of expressing traces from her personal history – relating to letters during the WW II between her grandparents.
The exhibition will run 9-15 December 2017.
