New exhibition coming to the Peacock Gallery by Linda Saul
22 September – 11 October 2018
My themes are the interaction of the elements with the built environment,
the structural geometric forms of buildings, the passage of time – decay,
weathering, adaptation, repair or ruin.
Having spent my early years living on an island, I retain my love of the
coast and my work features landmarks such as lighthouses and harbours.
Currently landlocked in Berkshire, I find myself looking locally and to
London for inspiration, exploring the collage of textures that is the city as
modern structures engulf the architecture of previous centuries.
I am excited by the unpredictable marks that arise from the physical
properties of watercolour, such as the rivulets formed by flocculating
pigments. I collage different paper textures, tearing back and scratching
the paper surface repeatedly producing rich layered effects.

The exhibition is about surface and depth, exploring the outer and inner environment. Landforms and water bodies echo the human body, both externally and internally. I will be showing textural, mixed media paintings around this theme.
I work by building up layers of media, creating surface and depth in my paintings. Each work is an exploration of an outer environment and response to the material. I am inspired by land and water, which echoes the external environment and internal body. My work is an expression of my inner world which sometimes comes as a surprise!
