Paul Lewin 'Penwith'

30 September - 21 October 2017

A painter of the coast and sea, Paul Lewin has emerged as one of the leading contemporary landscape painters in the south west. Born in Manchester in 1967, Paul studied at Stockport College and went on to complete a BA (hons) degree in Fine Art at Bristol Polytechnic in 1989. Since leaving college he has lived and worked in Cornwall, and he now lives in Penwith, the western most tip of Cornwall. A fluent “en plein air” painter, his work has developed in response to the characteristic coastal fringes of the peninsula. In exploring its rugged coastlines and wild interiors of moorland and valleys, the resulting works evoke a strong sense of atmosphere, through a sensitivity to the changing light and weather conditions. His paintings can be found in collections throughout the UK, Germany, Mexico, USA, Australia and the Far East. One commission includes six works for Cunard, hung in their luxury cruise liner Queen Mary II. Paul continues to exhibit throughout the south west, London and the UK. In 2016 the book ‘Paul Lewin – Zawn – Walking West Penwith’ by Paul Gough was published by Sansom & Company. Signed copies of the book are available through the gallery priced £20 (inc p&p).
