Richard Hoare-Morning Light on Ardevora Creek High Tide-2013

Richard Hoare

Morning Light on Ardevora Creek High Tide 2013

18"x22" (46x55cm). Oil on linen. shipped w/handmade gesso white frame.

My work is centered on Light and its subtle manifestation in the Landscape. The pictures shown here contain a fascination with ‘transparency’ and ‘ volume’ of empty space in the landscape. If one can see and paint the empty space /air  of a landscape as significantly as the fabric of Trees fields and Sea etc , then one is one step closer to the ‘ Flight ‘ that leads to embodying the Light into a painting… and this is what is reached for in this Work .
