Coastal Landscapes

Jeremy Gardiner has spent the last five years exploring locations on Britain’s south coast. This seaside odyssey has resulted in a new body of work that captures coastal landscapes from Kent to Cornwall. Gardiner has taken his inspiration not only from the natural world but from popular views of the coastal landscape in travel posters, guide books, postcards and ViewMaster reels which will also be featured in the exhibition.

Gardiner’s work reflects a deep interest in the geology of landscape and how it is shaped by the forces of nature. His working method involves creating distinct layers of colour by building accretions of paint, collaging, scouring and sanding down in an attempt to emulate on the surface of the paintings, the effects of geological time on the terrain.
