Marianne Nicholls – Tempest
Acrylic and locally gathered pigment on board
“Rarely are the paintings a straight forward image of a landscape. Rather they aim to portray an experience of the environment and capture the essence of tides, weather, light and seasonal changes. My process is expressive and energetic mimicking the sea and landscape as a constantly changing phenomenon.” Marianne Nicholls
Marianne Nicholls is a self-taught artist living in West Penwith. Her abstract works are firmly rooted in the landscape of the Cornish Coast. She spends much of her time exploring the area and is drawn to its history and wild landscape. Her affinity with the Cornish Coast and getting to know the land plays an important part in developing her painting style.
