Candida Stevens Gallery is proud to present Kerry Harding’s debut solo show, Edge of Day, a new body of work that puts the peculiarity of light at centre stage. Set against the backdrop of the rugged coastline of North Cornwall, these are the unique moments, often experienced at dawn and dusk, when clouds, landscape and sunlight combine to create fleeting encounters with the extraordinary and sublime. Manifestations of the artist’s memory and imagination, they are the views remembered long after their physical presence has vanished.
Kerry Harding is a landscape artist rooted in the traditions of Romanticism. Living in Cornwall, Harding sees the same paths, horizons and trees day after day. Kerry Harding’s landscape paintings are heavily involved with process, and that sublime moment of sensory response to abstract shape and colour, when the emerging image asserts its own meaning.
Candida Stevens Gallery is a curation led gallery established in 2012. The gallery produces exhibitions that explore important themes through the responses of new or relevant work by some of the finest emerging and established artists working in Britain today. With an energetic, curatorial curiosity the gallery works with artists who we believe have the skill, determination, integrity, enquiry and aptitude to make successful and interesting work.
Saturday, June 11 – Wednesday, 9 July, Wednesday-Friday 10am-5pm, Saturday 11am – 2pm.
