After UK’s long awaited return to the arts & cultural facilities following UK lockdowns, the Handa Gallery at Wells Maltings will reopen on 17th May with Tim Reed’s exhibition of Norfolk Skies.
Norfolk Skies; an installation of oil paintings inspired by the ever-changing skies over Norfolk.
In a region of exceptional beauty and unique geographic character, the extraordinary low horizons of North Norfolk create an experience that is always dominated by sky. The maritime climate, where Nordic weather systems skim across the coast and collide with the edge of the Gulf Stream, creates an unending spectacle of the subtlest light and movement.
“Norfolk Skies is my first homage to the joy and excitement of the Norfolk experience. Each of the paintings in this exhibition seeks to capture a moment in a day: the play of sunlight through the clouds, the setting sun in the west lighting up the air, or the sombre shades beneath heavy rain” said Tim Reed.
With minimal resources, these gestural oil paintings seek to discover images that evoke the ephemeral moments of colour, shifting form and elusive focus of the sky. Norfolk Skies, was first shown in Berlin in 2017.
The International Foundation for Arts & Cultural is proud to support Wells Maltings.
