New Work - Painting
Ross Loveday - Journeys
Taking the notion of ‘journeys’ as a starting point, this ambitious new body of work invites us to traverse painterly landscapes that are recalled from memory and highly charged with emotion. Through a dazzling array of gestures, colours and deeply excavated layers- Ross’s latest paintings blow open the possibilities of what a landscape can be.
Encompassing such diverse recollections as his upbringing in industrial South Wales, through to the wide planes of Suffolk countryside that surround his home, the images that emerge are bold and energetic as though caught in perpetual motion.
Breaking with convention, disobedient horizon lines wander into subterranean depths, scratched through thick layers of paint before leaping into flight. We may not be sure whether we’re looking above, below, within or without- but following the traces of the artist’s hand across these shifting terrains provides a roadmap to guide us back to reality- refreshed and rejuvenated.
