The Gentle Wild II – Kerry Phippen

9 August – 18 September

Malthouse Bar & Kitchen, Salmon Springs GL6 6NU

‘’The idea for this series of paintings came from a simple wish to bring the outdoors inside, and an initial vision of how I would love to see images of life-sized animals leaping around the space. My desire is to capture the sense of the animal, their very nature and traits and of course, their beauty. The deer in particular, have been a joy to paint, the lightness and skittishness of their personality make them all the more intriguing; I love that they hide and watch so carefully then bound away into the shelter of trees and foliage.”
