Remarkably this will be the eighteenth successive year that we have hosted a solo exhibition with John. During that time he has established himself as a leading contemporary land and seascape artist and has exhibited at both the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition and with the Royal Society of British Artists. Painting en plein air, John can often be found battling the elements on a Cornish cliff top or dodging the incoming tide as he works to capture a scene. Predominantly working in oils, he employs a technique that uses both palette knife and brush. This gives his work a richly textured, vibrant style, so full of energy that it transports you to these evocative locations.

About the Artists

JOHN BRENTON was born in 1964 and grew up in the Cornish village of Nanpean. He was encouraged from an early age to develop his creative talents, which eventually led to an honours degree in creative arts from Manchester University. All his spare moments were directed to meeting the challenge of painting the awe-inspiring beauty of the Cornish coastline, sea, sky and seashore. These are the inspirational symbols of many painters, but John tries for that extra dimension of the given moment. He begins his work at the spot that fires his interest and works quickly to capture as much as is fleetingly possible. After more work in his studio he will return to the spot with his canvas to make the important final touches.
