Sarah Woods | Early Light, Porthmeor | Oil on linen canvas


For just two weeks this May, New Craftsman Gallery presents a special collection by rising young artist and recent Falmouth graduate Sarah Woods. Sarah's work responds uniquely and subjectively to the West Cornwall landscape, capturing its tranquil beauty and pure northern light with a rare and calming simplicity.

This new series of work reflects the soft shades of sea and sky along the St Ives coastline at its quietest time of year - the blues of early spring warmth in the air and the shifting, milky tones of evening light across the water. The natural textures of oil paint and linen canvas add to the surface detail of each work, and Sarah's focus is always on the process of painting, on the wide stroke of arm and brush on canvas, which results in beautiful, spacious works defined by simple coastal shapes.
