Dynamic Hampstead landscapes on show at Highgate Contemporary Art

With its exhibition Nature’s Observatory, Highgate Contemporary Art proves yet again that there’s no need to venture downtown to see interesting art.
Four painters who depict landscape in diverse ways were selected by Crouch End artist, Hannah Ivory Baker. She is self-taught and found valuable advice from these established artists on Twitter. The opening night was the first time they all met.
The ethereal, contemplative watercolours of David Parfitt are the stars of the show for me. Ancient tracks, woods where silence is tangible and a fascination with water and scattered light make his works on paper covetable art.
Chris Prout’s dynamic landscapes of places ranging from Welsh mountains to Hampstead waters can be beguiling fusions of hazy horizons and topographical detail.
Rainy Day –Tenby, with its atmospheric reflections, is a fine example of the skills of David Porteous-Butler, who went to Highgate School and then studied with Kyffin Williams. Dion Salvador Lloyd makes lively paintings, full of drama, some with a tendency towards an ominous sensuality.
