Stories in the Landscape
Art Open Evening:
Thursday 18 September 2014
18:00 - 20:00
Marcus Nisbet's Stories in the landscape explores narrative in the painting of open space. This selection combines vigorous and painterly studies in oil with some beautifully rich, finished canvases that captivate the viewer with storytelling possibilities.
For Marcus, painting open space is like creating a stage or film set (his mother is a theatre designer) and makes most sense when seen in the context of human narrative. His Stories in the landscape explores these possibilities, combining vigorous and painterly studies in oil with some beautifully rich, finished pieces that typify his interest in using the landscape to build atmosphere and capture the imagination. The paintings approach his subject from three angles: scenes and studies close to home; scenes from his travels in western Canada; and scenes from the imagination, drawing on the other two and reflecting their lasting impact on him. Sometimes filmic, sometimes naturalistic, the works function as blank canvases on which people can invent their own stories or simply immerse themselves in the atmosphere of a moment.
