Award-winning painter Lucy Marks unveils her solo exhibition at Petworth House and Park from 3 July to 19 September 2021 – 50 paintings in oil and watercolour – inspired by the iconic National Trust site.
“The title of the exhibition, Dawn to Dusk, is a nod to Turner, who regularly visited and painted Petworth” Marks explains. “His work featured sunsets and sunrises in both watercolour and oil. As a landscape painter I, too, wanted to capture the cycle of a day at Petworth. From its dreamy sunrises to its gentle and dramatic sunsets.”
Lucy Marks is an award-winning landscape painter whose dynamic compositions communicate the changing energy and movement within the landscape and capture the energies of the land, sea and sky. She starts by working outside, drawing sketches in watercolour and oil from the landscape, then creates the final piece in her studio, removing any superfluous indication of representation or figuration.
Don’t miss Lucy Marks’ solo exhibition, Dawn to Dusk, at the Servants’ Quarters Gallery, Petworth House and Park, from 3 July to 19 September 2021. The works will also be available to view and purchase on Lucy Marks’ website.
