Peter Turnbull | A Single Patch of Ground 

Throughout August, Whitewater Gallery presents new work by acclaimed landscape painter Peter Turnbull. Turnbull studied at Nottingham College of Art and The Royal College of Art in both London and Paris. He was Head of Fine Art at the University of Chester and later became Visiting Professor of Fine Art after embarking on his full-time career as a painter.

Turnbull's radiant, softly hued paintings cover subjects from interiors to brooding, elemental landscapes, and inhabit those places where land gives way to the sea, where day and night meet, and where sleep rises and memory swirls. The artist's exquisite use of paint and his intimate relationship with the landscape are described in rich textures and translucent layers of oil colour, which demonstrate his understanding of the traditional techniques of both historic and contemporary British landscape painting.

These works will be on show in Whitewater Gallery's newly opened exhibition space in the heart of Polzeath, which is exclusively dedicated to original painting by selected artists, alongside the very best in contemporary craft.
