Having admired his work for some time, it was great to meet printmaker Richard Shimell today – and exciting to take delivery of several prints for the gallery. I enjoy working out how and where to display pieces to best effect. I’ll need to do some re-arranging and then they’ll be on display in a day or two.
This is one of my favourites – its called ‘To the Sea’ and is based on a walk near to Coleton Fishacre in South Devon. I get a real sense of anticipation that the sea is just about to come into view over the horizon.
