Portes' Mountain 5, 2017, Gesso, acrylic on panel, 120 x 81cm, £2750
We have curated a selection of work that represents wintry scenes as well as conjuring up an association or sensation of winter. The work of Emily Moore currently bestows a tranquil and reflective mood upon the main gallery.
Emily works directly onto birchwood panels, building up detailed layers and maintaining the natural texture of the wood underneath. She is fascinated by the organic patterns found in the mountains or other natural settings, contrasted with the linearity of man-made structures such as the buildings that make up various ski resorts. Her predominantly icy cool hues and the lacy pattern of the snow, transport you directly to the mountainous slopes of a European ski destination.

Elsewhere in the exhibition, the radiance of the paintings by Eberhard Ross create a quiet glow of colour amidst the subtle hues of white and will have you cosied up inside staring at them for hours.
And Sonja Weber's series of jacquard mountains have found a home in winter chalets and lodges because of their contemplative stillness and visual reflection of the alpine slopes.
