On Friday myself and a friend went to visit the Paul Nash exhibition at London’s Dulwich Picture Gallery. I’d kind of forgotten about Paul Nash but do vaguely remember him being talked about in art college lectures mostly in relation to his dramatic and brilliant war art. I recently looked him up again and realised that I also very much liked his landscape paintings and the ideas behind them. He did some purely figurative landscape work but also painted some works that are filled with symbolic and surreal elements. The results are beautiful and mystical and very English in the tradition of William Blake and Samuel Palmer. I also loved the colours he used, I would describe them as typical of the 1940s - salmon pinks, straw yellows, grey blues and olive greens. All in all I’d recommend a visit to this exhibition if you get a chance. Here’s some of the work I enjoyed the most.
