PORTRAITS OF GOLDEN CAP
18th January - 5th March 2023
Edward Hall draws his inspiration from the dramatic coastal and inland
landscapes of Dorset’s Jurassic Coast. His latest exhibition,
‘Portraits of Golden Cap’, explores the iconic form and setting of
this highest point on the south coast.
After a career as a
chartered landscape architect that left little time for painting, Hall
made a recent lifestyle change that resulted in a move to West
Dorset. Living in Ryall, the village on the slopes of Hardown Hill
between Lyme and Bridport, he didn’t have to venture far from home to
be inspired to make his earlier series of paintings entitled ‘A Year
on Hardown Hill’. He has created
this all-new collection of oil paintings specifically to exhibit in
the unique space offered by Lyme’s Rotunda Gallery. The nature and
arrangement of its walls suggested to him a series of vertical
portraits, rather than the usual horizontal landscapes. He found that
creating portrait paintings of landscape subjects presented a
particular challenge and demanded a different approach to composition,
resulting in a fascinating emphasis on foreground.
Rotunda Gallery, Lyme Regis Museum, Bridge Street, Lyme Regis DT7 3QA
open Tuesdays-Sundays from 10am until 4pm.
Don't get cut off by the tide
Nick Marks, previous Lifeboat Operations Manager,
said “We would encourage any visitor to the area to check tide times
before walking along the beach near Lyme Regis or Charmouth. The local
area experiences very high tides at times, so it is very important to check.”
