The new collection Just Beyond, featuring original landscape artworks from England, will be available to the public September 6th on ashley-stuart.com. The exhibition features 10 original watercolor or mixed media paintings and limited edition giclée prints that will be available until December 2020.
Art was my method of de-stressing during lockdown and I found opportunities to look for inspiration closer to home rather than around the world. “Just Beyond” is the result of my lockdown exploration, featuring UK landscapes nearby my home in Peterborough. I enjoy exploring expansive space viewed from first-person and guiding my viewers towards passageways to somewhere unknown. Each piece aims to be an avenue for nostalgia, while evoking curiosity about what might be just beyond the frame of view.
Using layers of visceral brushstrokes to create a fluid base, I applied watercolor pencil or graphite overtop to create depth, definition, and texture. My work focuses on figurative landscapes that are often devoid of people. With this collection, I hope to encourage viewers to embrace the beauty of life right outside your doorstep.
Viewings of original artwork may be arranged by appointment-only.
