OIL paintings with an underlining sense of danger and threat from the remoteness of the scene by Lucy Fiona Morrison go on show tomorrow at the Station gallery in Richmond.

The exhibition Colours Of The Landscape, presents the Yorkshire Dales in a new perspective. The artist uses oils mixed with linseed and poppy seed oil to build up layers of paint thinly producing movement and depth within each canvas.

Using photography and sketching, the basis is realism enhanced with her interpretation of the land and atmosphere. She often uses dramatic skies and shadows to depict movement.

Her work is strongly influenced by Caspar David Friedrich and Edward Hopper. Most of her paintings and charcoal drawings are devoid of human figures, yet often include some form of human construction or manipulation of the land.

These features allude to mankind’s interaction and encroachment across the land, yet leave an uncertainty to the time period.

Lucy graduated from Norwich University College of the Arts and now works as an artist and painter in Yorkshire. She specialises in largescale canvases of British landscapes, especially those surrounding West Yorkshire.

Career highlights include the opportunity to exhibit as part of the Wakefield Art Walk and exhibiting throughout the UK including London, Norwich, Leeds and Yorkshire.

The exhibition runs until Thursday, February 14.
