The Glow of Hours: Rebecca Partridge in Devon

A col­lec­tion of paint­ings by Rebec­ca Par­tridge includ­ing a new series of small works made in response to the local Devon landscape

Partridge typically creates works in series responding to particular locations, which have included deserts, glaciers and ancient forests, often observed over marked periods of time. Using a range of approaches, the works in this exhibition shift between acutely observed oil paintings of wild flowers at night, found in the local landscape of Honiton, to large watercolours of skies, built of dozens of thin washes on raw canvas, painted from memories of observing the transitions of dusk and dawn in the Mojave desert. Collectively the paintings begin to connect different qualities of light, time, place and process.

It is accompanied by the launch of the artists’ first print edition, ‘Forest Dawn’ made through the traditional process of Japanese woodblock printing. This project was generously funded by Arts Council England. With thanks to poet Alice Oswald, whose poem ‘Marginalia at the Edge of the Evening’ inspired the title of the exhibition.
