Solo exhibition of recent paintings
"All of the paintings in the exhibition have their starting point in the Marais Breton Vendéen - 250 square kilometres of reclaimed marshland in western France - and reflect my deepening understanding of how this place works. The moon's phases and the tides, the creek systems of fresh and salt water, and the existence of differing plant species depending on how saturated the land is. My new knowledge of these fundamental aspects enables me to make these works less representational, I'm now composing paintings based on how the Marais Breton Vendéen functions and not just its extraordinary and deceptive appearance."
Peter Joyce, December 2012
