New work by Kitty North, contemporary painter of landscapes and people.
Anyone who has been wondering whether the British landscape tradition has outlived its ability to surprise should look at the art of Kitty North. It is absolutely true to the tradition from which it springs, that of Turner and Constable, and yet it could belong to no other age but our own.
North is fascinated by the bleak landscape of that part of North Yorkshire that borders on Lancashire and Cumbria.
âThe paintings represent the human and natural world which are all part of the landscape story,â says Kitty North.
Kitty North is credited with an extraordinary ability for revealing the pulse and spirituality of her subjects. She works primarily in oil paint, but also in watercolour and mixed media and is inspired by the beautiful landscapes of her home in Yorkshire.
The exhibition can also be seen at The Arts Club, 40 Dover Street W1, 8-25 November 2006.
