Barry Kelly - Sunny Sands. Stormy Skies
4 - 19 August 2017
PRIVATE VIEW - Thursday 3rd August
This new collection explores the sights, sounds and sensations along the South Hams coastline from Spring to Summer. From morning to night. Sunshine and storm. Visiting old haunts and new. On many occasions I had the pleasure of re-experiencing the delights of Devon through the eyes of my son. Taking our time to enjoy the soft sand and glistening ocean that envelops this part of the world. The series is entirely based on the South Hams coastline from Salcombe to Mothecombe. The beaches around Salcombe and Bigbury receive most attention, partly due to the way light plays on the sand and sea in these areas and partly because of the make-up of the coastline. The lines, curves, colours and textures excite and inspire me.
