Virtual Exhibition 2020

On a Knife Edge

The work in this online exhibition predominantly uses the palette knife, a landscape technique pioneered by realist French painter Gustave Courbet. In 2008 we visited Ornans the town where Courbet was raised and one work, “the Source”, is a homage to Courbet. All the works were completed in the studio over the last year but reflect earlier travels and plein-air painting experiences.
