Ross Penhall

 

Humanity's relationship to the natural world has been the ongoing subject of landscape painting for centuries.  Artistic interpretations of nature range widely from chaotic and dangerous, as a force opposing civilization, to the pastoral and the fantastic.  Ross Penhall's contributions to this conversation are tranquil and balanced scenes.  Whether a shadowy forest, a cloud-filled sky or a more mitigated environment such as a park or agricultural lands, he reveals his particular relationship to the land to be one of connectedness and harmony.

His abstracted renderings of light, form and colour offer viewers an interpretation of nature as a calming or grounding entity.  Able to recognize and capture the quietude and stillness of open fields, wind swept hills and even urban parks, Penhall's paintings communicate his profound appreciation of the external world.
