From the Marram: acrylic on canvas 81×61.5cm
© Cuillin Bantock 2017
Hiraeth represents a summation of Cuillin Bantock’s wide-ranging career as a painter. The focus is on two locales: a village in Worcestershire where he was brought up and maritime Harlech, where he lived during the war. His duneland drawings, gouaches, pastels and non-depictive maritime paintings on canvas all convey a sense of space and fascination with the ambiguous balance between representation and abstraction. Catalogues will be available and there will be an artist talk on 12 March.
