"To The Beach and Back" paintings of the Roseland by William Nash at Veryan Galleries

24 May — 7 June 2009

In Nash's latest show a journey to the beach becomes a journey into the creative process. Using strong light and textures he builds a personal portrait of the area.

Veryan Galleries, on the beautiful Roseland Peninsular, has a reputation for showing quality work from established and up and coming Cornish artists. It is situated between two of Veryan Green's famous Roundhouses and is near the sea at Carne beach and Portloe.

William Nash is one of Veryan Galleries most succesful artists and this new exhibition has resulted from his fascination with the local area.Thoughts on life's journey run through the show and the artist takes the viewer on both a literal and metaphorical journey via painting. Nash has created a portrait of a place which has personal significance for him ( Portholland in The Roseland ) .

Through many paintings he takes us down sunlit lanes where the light dapples through a heavy green canopy, leading us eventually to the sea where small houses shelter below heavy cliffs.The creative methods employed in his painting result in rich textures and shimmering light. The images resonate with memories of the past and the anticipation of what is to come.
