Jake Attree: An Artist’s visit to Ryedale
Jake Attree presents an exhibition inspired by time spent in and around Ryedale. ‘I want the paintings, oil pastels and drawings in this exhibition to have a sense of the places that inspired them,’ he writes, ‘whether York, the landscape around Welburn, the River Derwent at Malton, or a view across the Howardian Hills from Pickering Castle. Completely dependent on the subject whilst simultaneously independent of it. A celebration of Paul Cézanne’s idea that art is “a harmony that runs parallel to nature” and full of a sense of what it feels like to spend time in North Yorkshire.’
Jake Attree would like to dedicate this exhibition to the memory of Dr Richard Shephard.
