Private view at the Vyner Street Gallery featuring paintings by Adrian Hemming.
Adrian Hemming's landscapes have grown in cultural significance since he was twice shortlisted for the National Gallery's "Artist in Residence". Geography and art have a long historical association; human relationships to nature and the understanding of the mechanisms which enable this, have been handfast with art's narrative and it's these influences which are growing in an age of displacement and detachment.
Hemming's new collection of work draws from his experiences in, and travels to, both the exotic and the ordinary, such as the Yucatan jungle, Australian rainforest and the Channel Islands. His sensitive awareness of human and physical landscape and the colour that permeates his paintings, creates a body of work that reminds us how we should understand and define a place and that each encounter with a landscape, people and culture, is part of a greater journey.
