Mary Pym

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Inspired by the varied nature and changing moods of the English and Irish countryside, Mary Pym works in oils to produce landscapes in which shape, colour and texture combine to create compositions of great abstract beauty giving the viewer a convincing impression of atmosphere and recession.

Especially drawn to the rolling hills of County Cork, Donegal, Galway, Hampshire and Dorset patchworked with small fields punctuated with trees, barns and hedgerows, Mary Pym transforms each scene into a glowing pattern of rich colours – sometimes purely abstract in nature, sometimes reflecting different times of the day or stages in the agricultural year.

Mary Pym is also fascinated by the flatter, barren landscape of Dungeness where huts, boats and the occasional fisherman stand out against a thin strip of sea beneath a vast expanse of sky conveying a mood of tranquillity and solitude.

Born in Holland, Mary Pym studied art at Winchester College of Art and Southampton College of Art. She has exhibited extensively across the south of England including the Royal Academy and has shown her work to tremendous popular acclaim at the Llewellyn Alexander Gallery for over 20 years.
