'The Magic of Brittany'

The Land of Light and Mystery

by Brian Sharland

Tuesday 2nd – Saturday 13th August 2016

Open Tuesday to Saturday 11am - 5pm

Private View 

Brittany has long been the destination of many artists across the decades.  Many were drawn by the quality of the light there and even today the light in Brittany is special. This exhibition captures the essence of that magical quality and sets out to show the quiet beauty and the magnificence that is Brittany.  These images were taken during my artist in residence stay over the autumn of 2015.  In that time I visited many places in that beautiful province and recorded several hundred photos both on the coast and inland.  Brittany is surrounded by sea on three sides but has a vast interior given mostly to farming.  I have tried to give a picture of Brittany as a whole from the apocalyptic drained lake at Guerlédan to the red cliffs of Le Pouldu and the resort of Concarneau to bays of the Cote d'Armor!

Artists Statement

“My photography reflects both my love of the wild landscape such as mountains but also the more gentle urban locations. I spend a lot of time photographing my local area (Tooting) as it holds many hidden corners and delightful places.

My love of landscape generally is what drives me to promote British landscape photography as collectible art, which we do through the UKlandscape website. Where else in the world is there such a diverse landscape as we have on this beautiful island we all live on. I hope to record as many of its various aspects as I can”.
