Cotswold – an exhibition by Rupert Aker

Date(s) - 01/12/2013 - 24/12/2013
9:00 am - 6:00 pm


An exhibition of landscape paintings of the Cotswold Hill. Rupert walks the local valleys and hills, gaining my inspiration from the woods, meadows and hedgerows, painting ‘en plein air’ when possible. His aim is to capture the effect of the light on the land though the medium of oil paint with palette knife. He aims to find a way of expressing the wonder

of nature and the landscape around me through the medium of oil paint on canvas and to create an emotional response through my painting – whether it be a sense of peace and calm or drama and energy: evening light and shadows; cow parsley and hogweed on a wayside verge; water and reflections; mist, evaporation and sunshine after a rain storm; the gloaming; a church spire providing a focal point in the landscape…

My current project is to hold a regular pop-up exhibition at locations throughout the Cotswolds, showing my art in the landscape that inspired them. I often sell paintings straight off the easel – I love the idea of people buying freshly produced paintings as they might buy freshly cut flowers.
