Sophie Levi and Tess Recordon – Contemporary Landcapes
13-26 May 2016
The sea, mountains, forests and the landmarks and parks of North West London can be seen in highly original, atmospheric oil paintings, in contrasting styles, by two established British artists.
While Levi works from life in her studio in Camden and outside in the elements, Recordon works from memory, creating work full of depth, movement and life with poured paint.
Both break down the divide between the self and the landscape. They exhibit widely.
Last year Recordon was Artist in Residence at Burgh House, Hampstead.
Touring exhibitions have included ‘British Landscapes’ ‘Mountains and Water’ and ‘Jungles of Borneo’.
In 2012 one of Levi’s paintings was shortlisted for the biggest art prize for a single work of art in the UK, the £30,000 Threadneedle Art Prize. In 2015 she took part in the Sky Arts Landscape Painter of The Year competition. In 2015 Andrew Marr sat for a portrait by Levi; he called her a ‘proper artist’.
