Joe Webster is a plein-air artist whose canvases are formed by playing in the wind, rain, mist or sun. Rather than painting in his studio with sketches, photos or memories, Joe’s work emerges from the exhilarating challenge of being outdoors in the great British climate. Working with graffiti and water-based media, the effect of weather on his canvases defines the aesthetic of his paintings. Rain, mist, hail, ice and sun each create different challenges and leave diverse effects in the paint on his canvas.
Informal gallery talk with the artist: Saturday 3 August at 11 am.
Being Present is an exhibition of Joe Webster’s latest works painted in Devon and in particular from aboard his canoe as he paddles around the creeks of the Kingsbridge estuary. Bluebells from West Alvington woodland are presented alongside views to Horse’s Head at East Prawle. Being Present describes Joe’s working method, his philosophy of putting aside digital media, and the intimacy gained with his landscape.
