Neil Pinkett

14 March - 7 April 2018

the artist Neil Pinkett painting en plein air at Cape Cornwall on the cliffs“St. Michael’s Mount”

Neil Pinkett, who was born in St. Just in the far south-west of Cornwall, has been painting the sea almost every day for over 20 years. Over the last few months, Neil has turned his attention to one of the most iconic scenes in Cornwall – that of St. Michael’s Mount in Marazion, along the coast from Penzance.

Neil has a wonderful view of the Mount from his studio window, and he has painted it often, but this is the first time he has dedicated an entire collection of new paintings to the ‘castle in the sea’ that is St. Michael’s Mount.

“I am fortunate to live somewhere which has attracted artists over the centuries. At one level, this has produced pictorial evidence of how buildings and plantings have evolved over time. At another, it is often intriguing to see how a place one thinks one knows well is perceived in another’s eyes. 
And while St Michael’s Mount has been painted many times over, it is much more unusual for an artist to put together a whole collection of work that captures its different moods and picks out the detail that gives the island its individual and quirky character. 
Neil Pinkett’s art breathes his love of the Cornish coast. He lives in Marazion and is therefore constantly aware of the Mount. It is so very apt that he has been inspired to take on this ambitious project.”
