About the event

A selection of works by an acclaimed landscape artist will be exhibited at a London gallery from this week.

A Darker Light by Lawrence Coulson will be on display at Castle Fine Art in the Royal Exchange from Thursday 1st March until Friday 16th March.

Coulson is best known for his oil paintings which bring dramatic open spaces and skylines to life. He takes particular influence from his local landscape near the Cambridgeshire Fens and names 19th century Romantic painters, J.M.W Turner and Frederic Edwin Church, as guiding influences, along with his father, celebrated artist Gerald Coulson.

The artist began working on A Darker Light following a visit to the Affordable Art Fair which left him feeling inspired by the quality of work and techniques used by other landscape artists. He has paid particular attention to the use of colour in the collection by opting to use a stronger, more powerful palette.

A self-confessed Gary Numan fan, Coulson borrowed the name A Darker Light from a live EP of Gary’s that he spotted in his studio whilst waiting for paintings to dry. The name immediately resonated with him and he felt it would perfectly epitomise the focus on light in the body of work.

Coulson signed to Washington Green, the UK’s leading fine art publisher, in 1999 and has gone on to become the company’s longest serving artist.

Speaking about A Darker Light, he said: “I have tried to keep a consistency with the subject matter to create a sense of harmony within the collection.

“I wanted my work to become more about contrast, lighter and darker tones, uplifting and reflective moods, as well as moments of hope and optimism amongst a threatening atmosphere. I feel A Darker Light captures this perfectly.’’

Katrina Aris, gallery manager at Castle Fine Art, Royal Exchange, said: ‘’Over the last 19 years Lawrence has created work that captures and does justice to the bounteous natural landscapes we have in Great Britain.

“His latest collection does not disappoint and makes the prefect escapism for Londoners who need a break from city life.’’
