Of Truth of Water by Frances Hatch

An exhibition of plein air paintings in water-based media by Frances Hatch ARWS.  The works in the show speak of specific encounters and accumulations of experience in the steep Brantwood gardens, lakeside, Coppermines Valley and White Lady Falls between 2019 and 2023. Frances integrates earths indigenous to each site with watercolour, gouache and acrylic paint. Water shapes this land of lakes and is the vehicle that transports and contains the ingredients of each work in this exhibition.  ‘The spirit of Ruskin, keen observer, fluent watercolourist, brush and pen in hand accompanied my explorations. Without the raindrop there is no waterfall, the White Lady only appears after rain.’
