Landscape Painting: Paul Needles: Moments
“It’s almost two years since Paul’s last and highly successful exhibition at Bristol Guild Gallery and he’s not slowed down at all.
“He continues to explore the landscape and seascapes of Britain and Spain and, for this new show, seeks to capture the moment when the land and sea change – when waves crash and dissipate and sunlight changes what we see and how we see it.
“There are interesting comparisons in the paintings: between the arid mountains of Mallorca and the lush forests of Gloucestershire; between the sun-soaked Costas and the gentler English seaside; and between the architecture of British towns and Spanish villages.
“Working from sketches, collages and photographs, Paul creates work mostly in oils, from modest size to grand canvas.”
