The beautiful Through All Seasons collection by Lawrence Coulson takes us on a grand tour of scenes guaranteed to evoke a nostalgia and longing for all things British, from recent additions to our city skyline such as the Millennium Dome, to the fairgrounds and fishing trips that call to mind many a childhood of bygone days.
However, this work is far more than a collection of picture perfect postcard moments. These scenes aim to evoke a surreal sense of serenity, to create a moment for the onlooker, almost to disquiet us in a most pleasing way, as a pervading sense of déjà vu brings an involuntary rush of memories to the fore.
Lawrence says: “My landscape paintings focus on the atmosphere of particular locations rather than the geographical characteristics. I am interested in what they make the viewer feel, what they can draw out of the painting. Collectors in the past have employed wonderful phrases to describe the work, ranging from ‘escapist’, to ‘romantic’ and ‘melancholy’, all of which pretty much grasp what I am trying to achieve."
Throughout his prestigious career to date, Lawrence has diversified in subject matter whilst retaining the technique and flair that has earned him critical acclaim and an ever growing audience of collectors. In Through All Seasons, we see a looser technique and a more fluid approach, which comes with his acquired skill and confidence with his subject matter.
